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.

What is the Elks National “Hoop Shoot” Program?

The Elks “Hoop Shoot” Free Throw Contest is the largest most visible of the many youth activities sponsored by Elks lodges. Over 3,000,000 boys and girls ages 8-13 will participate this year. The Elks “Hoop Shoot” has served to highlight the Elks commitment to America’s youth. From the millions of youngsters who participate and advance through the local, district, state and regional competition, six national champions are named – one boy and one girl in each of the three categories: ages 8-9, 10-11 and 12-13. The winners each receive a trophy and their names are inscribed on a plaque at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Massachusetts. Parents accompany contestants throughout the competition. The parents of finalists at the state, regional, and national levels attend the competition as guests of the Elks.

How will the “Hoop Shoot” benefit the Children Who Participate?

The Elks desire through their “Hoop Shoot” program, to provide an interesting, character-building, competitive program for all girls and boys in the contest regardless of their previous athletic competition or abilities. This nationwide, sanctioned program gives these youngsters an opportunity for spirited competition, fine relationships with their peers, and travel statewide, regionally and nationally- at a minimal expense to their parents. Not only are the participants involved in this wholesome, individual-effort program, but parents, classmates, teachers and community are included.

The Elks Believe “Yes to the “Hoop Shoot” ---- No to Drugs”

“Hoop Shoot” is a registered trademark of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America.

Donation of Picnic Shelter to Camp Raven Knob Boy Scout Reservation

group photo at picnic shelter

The Mt. Airy Elks Past Exalted Ruler Association used the proceeds from a fundraiser earlier this year to fund a new picnic shelter at Camp Raven Knob Boy Scout Reservation. Construction was completed on December 30, 2017 in time for the scouts to use it during their Klondike Jamboree in January.

With volunteer labor (and expertise!) from our members and generous materials donations from area businesses, Mt. Airy Elks Lodge is proud to invest in the future of our community by helping to support the Boy Scouts of America.

Here's a photo album of the work as it progressed.
