Mount Airy Elks Lodge #2061


We're glad you stopped by!

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.


2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:00 PM

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 Creed

Believe 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.

ER Says

Brother and Sister Elks:

I would like to dedicate this month's newsletter to my new chaired officers. I asked them to introduce themselves to the membership with a short bio:

Jacob Cooke - Leading Knight

I have been around the Lodge my entire life and officially became an Elk three years ago. My Dad, Joe Cooke, is a Past Exalted Ruler (PER) of the Mount Airy Elks Lodge and has always been my role model. His dedication to Elkdom has contributed to that. I work at Hugh Chatham Memorial Hospital in Elkin as a speech pathologist. I am an Elk. I am a cyclist. I am a Christian. I enjoy spending time with my girlfriend, my family, and my dog. I plan on being an Elk indefinitely.

Lauren-Maree McPhail - Loyal Knight

My name is Lauren-Maree McPhail and yes, you do have to call me by both names please. I graduated from North Carolina State University in 2007 with a degree in Political Science and received my Juris Doctor Degree from Wake Forest University in 2011. Currently, I practice law in Surry and Stokes counties. This is my third year as a member of the Mount Airy Elks Lodge. Last year, I had the pleasure of serving as Esquire and I look forward to serving as Loyal Knight this year.

Ben Davis - Lecturing Knight

I was born in and went to school in Mount Airy. I currently live in Winston Salem but come to the Mount Airy Lodge frequently. I am a Navy veteran and spent four years in San Diego during my military service. I am thrilled to serve as the Lecturing Knight this year.

Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Pete Wood and Jack King as they continue to battle illnesses; Patsy Atkins' sister as she battles cancer; Randy Hardin as he battles serious eye issues; and Zach Williams' stepmother as she undergoes radiation treatments.

Tommy Marion
Exalted Ruler

An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken!
