Mount Airy Elks Lodge #2061

Welcome

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.

Meetings

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 take this opportunity to recognize some people who have been Elk members for many years. Doug Norman (20); Tommy Marion, Anthony Martin, and Joe Phillips (21); Mark Alderman, Steve Button, and Barry Payne (24); Marty Dunbar and Dennis Martin (26); Dean Bray, Jack King, and Robert Taylor (27); Joe Cooke, Lewis Cox, and Jim Jackson (29); Frank Shelton (33).

The Blue Collar Silent Auction was a huge success raising over 1,000 for the Lodge. Thank you Jacob Cooke for all your work on this event.

Make plans to attend our end of summer party at the pool on Saturday, September 10th. We will have horseshoes, flip cup, yard Yahtzee, ladder golf, and giant Jenga set up. We will also be grilling out so bring food and celebrate having another great season at our pool.

Mark Alderman, Jacob Cooke, Ruth Ann Harold, Mark Marion, Norman Marion, and I attended the DD Clinic in Statesville on August 28th. If you have never attended a DD Clinic, please do so. Lots of great information is shared and it would be well worth your time. We have 2,553 members in our district (West Central) and have gained 175 new members this year. New members are what keeps our Lodges thriving with new ideas and participation to help achieve our goals. Please make it one of your goals to recruit a new member by year end....what a big difference that would make in our Lodge.

I am proud to announce that we have already met our per capita goal for the Elk National Foundation. We were number one in our district last year with over 9.00 per capita. Help us be number one again by contributing to the ENF whenever you can. To find out more about what the ENF does in addition to awarding over 3.5 million in scholarships each year, visit www.ncelks.org.

The 10th Annual Layne Creed Memorial Ride will be Saturday, September 17th and will end at our Lodge again this year. There will be food, door prizes, an auction, and lots of fun......all for a good cause.

Sunday football (NFL) will start on September 11th. We will have the games on four tv's, the cornhole boards set up, and food. Come out and support your favorite team while having fun with friends and supporting the lodge too!

Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Mark O'Neal, Pete Wood and Gary Kidd as they battle illnesses; Patsy Atkins' sister as she battles cancer, and Terry Scott's wife Janice as she experiences health issues. 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.

Respectfully,
Tommy Marion
