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:
I would like to take this opportunity to recognize some people who have been Elk members for many years. Rossie George, John Jackson, and James Stuart (30 years); Doug Nichols, David Taylor, and Terry Warren (32 years); Rick Dunbar and Robert Easter (33 years); Bruce Kinnaman and Jake Robertson (34 years); David Jessup, Gary Kidd, and Dale Manuel (35 years); Melvin Jackson (36 years); Mark O'Neal and Alton Smith (37 years); Ernie Collins and Terry Scott (38 years); Pete Leonard and Bob Moody (39 years).
It is with great sadness that I inform you of the passing of a beloved Elk member, dear friend, and valuable employee, Diane Chamberlain. Without her loyalty and dedication to our Lodge for many years, our existence could be questioned. She was a constant for many years that helped keep our lodge running as smoothly as possible. Diane will be greatly missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to Randy and her entire family.
Mark Alderman, my wife Shannon, and I attended the Elk National Convention July 3rd through July 7th in Houston, TX. Approximately 6,000 Elks from all over the U.S. were there sharing information about their lodge, their projects and their fundraising ideas. With daily business meetings and the many state hospitality rooms to visit, we had a very busy schedule. Remember, all Elk members can go to the state and national conventions. The more of us that go the more fun it is and the more we are able to share and learn!
The grants I mentioned in last month's newsletter went to good use! Proceeds from the Beacon Grant helped local needy children and proceeds from the Gratitude Grant went to help the Woltz Hospice Home and the Maranatha Outreach Program. Thanks to all who attended the presentations and all who had a part in this endeavor.
The Blue Collar Silent Auction & Gala has been postponed until August 13th so that more items can be secured for the event. As all proceeds from the auction go to benefit the Lodge, it a very important event for us. Please help ensure the success of this project by donating items and helping with the event itself.
August is the last full month that the pool will be open this year. We are very pleased with the way members and their guests have utilized it this season. Let's keep it going this month by attending the events scheduled at the pool.
Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Pete Wood, Jack King, and Gary Kidd as they battle illness; Patsy Atkins' sister as she battles cancer; Randy Hardin as he battles serious eye issues; Terry Scott's wife Janice as she experiences health issues; Marty Dunbar as he recovers from knee replacement surgery; Robert Easter's stepson as he battles illness; Norman Marion as he recovers from shoulder replacement surgery; Stonie Dunbar as he continues to recover from injuries; Shannon Sutphin's wife Sunni as she recovers from back surgery; Gary Campanelli's wife Abbey and his mother-in-law as they battles illness.
An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken!
