Welcome to the Mount Airy Elk's Lodge! We are located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Surry County, NC on Elks Drive just off Andy Griffith Parkway (US 52) in Mount Airy, NC. Stop by and join us for some fun and fellowship!
Elks Care. Elks Share!
Although its a small town lodge, Elkdom is very much alive and well in Mount Airy. Between activities in the Ballroom, catered events in the Dining Room, billiards and ping pong in the Rec Room, fun at the pool, and live entertainment in our spacious lounge, there's always something going on at the Mount Airy Lodge.
Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Thursdays except July and August when we meet on the 2nd Thursday only. Meetings are held in the ballroom at 7:00 PM.
Elks CreedBelieve in the goodness in thy self, as well as in others.
Protect childhood with tenderness, old age with respect, cherish with reverence the memory of those who have passed.
Observe faithfully the golden rule.
Enjoy the good things of earth, keep within thee the glorious sunshine of youth and remain always of good cheer.
Brother and Sister Elks:
Goodbye 2016 and hello 2017! This year has been fulfilling and rewarding beyond words. We have set goals, met them, and even surpassed them in most cases. Being an Elk in this new year brings excitement and great expectation for another successful year. Let's make 2017 great!
I would like to determine whether or not this monthly newsletter is being read and if it benefits our members. Without telling any other members, put your name on a piece of paper and drop it in the comment box at the sign-in desk in the lounge. You will then be entered for a twenty dollar cash drawing. Please do not share this with other members so that our results will be accurate.
Our yearly Hoop Shoot is upon us and we will need several volunteers to help with it. Please make plans to be at the Hoop Shoot on Sunday, January 8th at 2:00 pm at Reeves Community Center. The qualifying pool tournaments will be on January 14th and 28th. Both are on Saturdays and will start at 3:00 pm and 2:00 pm, respectively.
The High Point Lodge has challenged us to raise money for Camp Carefree. They have donated an assembled hog that had been painted "breast cancer awareness" pink for the challenge. We will accept donations for Camp Carefree until February 25th at which time the Breast Cancer Awareness hog will be auctioned off to the highest bidder via a silent auction. The proceeds from the auction will also go to Camp Carefree.
Be sure to check your e-mail, our website, our Facebook page, and the monthly calendar for more January events.
Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Our Country, our Service Men and Women; Gary Kidd as he faces medical issues; Zach Williams' aunt, Ray Flippen's brother, Marty Dunbar's father-in-law, Lauren-Maree McPhail's stepmother, and Terry Scott's wife as they battle illness; the families and friends of Fred Lewis and Fred Folger on their passing. As I may not be aware, please let me know if you or someone in our Lodge is suffering from sickness or has lost a loved one.
An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken!
