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. Ray White was initiated in August of 1958 and is our only remaining charter member. We also have several more who have 50 or more years of membership: Sam Self (50), Gary Key (51), Denny Shelton (51), Harris Green (53), and Fred Folger (55). These gentlemen are a valuable part of our Lodge's history. They all dedicated countless hours and offered immeasurable dedication to build the very foundation of our organization. It is because of them and others like them that we have the honor and privilege of being an Elk.
Due to circumstances beyond his control, Ben Davis is resigning his position as Lecturing Knight. Thank you Ben for the time and effort you have put forth during your tenure as an officer....we wish you the very best! We will be accepting nominations to fill this vacancy at our next meeting on June 9th.
On May 14th, we had our ER Celebration. Following are some of the awards that were presented during this event: Mark Alderman (Distinguished Citizen of the Year), Gary Campanelli (Officer of the Year), and Fern Smith (Elk of the Year). Thank you all for everything you do for me and for the Lodge.
We experienced a setback with opening the pool on May 28th as originally planned. The opening has been rescheduled for Friday, June 3rd. Thanks to all who helped get the pool ready this year. This is a hard job and I appreciate all who stepped up to get the job done.
Our officers are planning a silent auction and gala. The "Elks Blue Collar Auction" will be held on Saturday, July 30th. Mark your calendars to attend this fun event. Details to follow.
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; Zach Williams' stepmother as she undergoes radiation treatments; Marty Dunbar as he prepares for further knee surgery; and my, Mark and Norman's mother as she battles pneumonia and congestive heart failure in the hospital.
An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken!

Flag Day Ceremony
Patriotism has characterized the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America since the early days of the organization. Allegiance to the flag of our country is a requirement of every member. In 1907, the Grand Lodge of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks designated, by resolution, June 14 as Flag Day. The Grand Lodge of the Order adopted mandatory observance of the occasion by every Lodge in 1911, and that requirement continues. The Elks prompted President Woodrow Wilson to recognize the Order's observance of Flag Day for its patriotic expression. But it was not until 1949 when President Harry Truman, himself a member of the Elks, made the proclamation that thereafter June 14 would be a day of national observance for the symbol of our country. It was through his Elks Lodge in Independence, Missouri, that President Truman got the idea for a national observance of Flag Day.
