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. Tim George, Jim Roberts and Charles Hoover (40 years); Travis Holland and Wade Moore (41 years); Carl Bell, Bruce Hawks, Fred Lewis, Donald Smith and Weldon Taylor (44 years); William Dressman, James Dunbar and Alvin Scott (45 years); George Fawcett (46 years); Howard Bunn, Bernard Coniglio, Wayne Draughn, Gene Fleming, Joe Harrell, Robert Hemrick, Charles Jarrell and Steve Simmons (48 years); and Stonie Dunbar, Harold Hodges and David Simmons (49 years).
The Lodge applied for and qualified to be a recipient of the 2016 Gratitude Grant from the Elk National Foundation. The grant will be used to benefit the Woltz Hospice Home in Dobson and the Maranatha Homeless Outreach in Mount Airy. The items needed by the Hospice Home have already been acquired and a date has been set to take them to the facility. I would like to have as many Elk members as we can go with us to the Hospice Home on Thursday, July 7th at 6:00 pm. Details on a date and time to deliver items to the Maranatha Homeless Outreach will be available soon. This grant is enabling us to help where the need is greatest in our community. I hope that we are well represented at both of these presentations.
Don't forget that the pool and the gas grill will be available to all Elk members over the Fourth of July holiday. Please enjoy the amenities we have to offer as you celebrate our nation's independence and freedom with your family and friends.
I challenged my chaired officers to host an event to help raise money for the Lodge. They have come up with the great idea of the "Elks Blue Collar Silent Auction and Gala". This event will be held on Saturday, July 30th at 8:00 pm. They have asked me to give you more details about the event and ask for all Elk members' help to make this event successful. We need donations! If you have something of value you are willing to part with and think someone else would want, please bring that item for display with the bid sheets. If it is not feasible to bring the item itself, please bring a detailed description and/or photo of the item. Donors will not be reimbursed for the things they donate....all proceeds will go to benefit our Lodge.
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; Terry Scott's wife Janice as she experiences health issues; Marty Dunbar as he prepares for further knee surgery; Stonie Dunbar as he recovers from injuries; Norman Marion as he prepares for shoulder surgery.
An Elk is never forgotten, never forsaken!
