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:
This month I would like to recognize a "duo" as our Elks of the month for November. These guys have been a valuable part of our lodge for a long time and a huge part of my life for even longer. I have relied on them heavily during my tenure as Exalted Ruler and they are always there for me. We all know and love them.....my brothers Mark and Norman Marion. With both of them having birthdays this month as well, it would be a great time to buy them a drink and thank them for their service to Elkdom. Thank you for your support bros!
I would also like to recognize our Auxiliary for all they do for the Lodge. Currently they are serving as a part of our Christmas committee helping to set up a angel tree and feed needy families during the holidays. They sponsor several children's events during the year including a Kid's Easter party, Christmas party, and a pool party. They are always there to support the Elks in their endeavors. You are appreciated more than you know!
Veterans and their causes are especially important to Elks. With Veteran's Day being in November, we have several events scheduled so that we can honor them and express our appreciation for their service to our country. Check this month's calendar for details about our Veternan's Recognition Program and the Veteran's Parade and Ceremony.
The High Point Lodge will be visiting us on Thursday, November 12th for the Traveling Gavel. Please plan on being there at 6 pm and bringing a covered dish so we can enjoy food and fellowship before our Lodge meeting starts at 7 pm. I would really like to have a big crowd for this event.....the Traveling Gavel never fails to be entertaining for all who participate.
Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Mark O'Neal as he continues to battle illness; Mark and Sara Marion on the passing of Sara's mother Nellie Linville, and Randy Culler on the passing of his uncles, Roger Matthews (a long time Elk member) and Andy Baldwin. 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.
An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken!
Elks Scholarship Opportunities
The Mt. Airy Elks Lodge is doing big things to help local youth. Elks invest in our nation's future by helping deserving students attend the colleges of their dreams. This year, the Elks National Foundation will fund 2.44 million in college scholarships through its three scholarship programs. Most Valuable Student scholars are outstanding students who are at or near the top of their classes, active in their schools and communities, and are recognized as leaders by their peers. Other ENF programs include Legacy Awards, which as designated for children and grandchildren of Elks, and Emergency Educational Grants for children of deceased or totally disabled Elks.
In addition, The NC Elks Association awards Nursing scholarships to applicants accepted in qualified NC Schools of Nursing. Download the Nursing Scholarship Application here.
Through the Most Valuable Student (MVS) competition, The Elks National Foundation will award 20 top scholarships ranging from 20,000 to 50,000. The remaining 480 runners-up will receive 4,000 scholarships.
The MVS scholarship is available to high school seniors who are United States citizens. Applicants do not need to be related to a member of the Elks. Males and females compete separately and are judged on scholarship, leadership and financial need. The 500 national winners will be announced in late April 2016, after the top 20 finalists participate in the Leadership Weekend. Applications are available at http://www.elks.org/enf/scholars/
Applications must advance through local, district and state competitions to reach national judging. All scholarships are in the form of certificates of award conditional upon the full-time enrollment of the winner in an accredited U.S. college or university.
