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 recognize Gary Campanelli as our outstanding Elk of the Month for October. Gary is an excellent example of a true Elk. He serves as a Trustee, tracks volunteer hours and money raised for Grand Lodge reports, and is a valued member of the Motorcycle Committe where he serves as treasurer. Recently he completed the Beacon grant application on behalf of the Lodge and it has been approved! Thank you Brother for everything you do!
I would like to say thanks to all those that attend our bi-monthly Lodge meetings where we recognize those in need of our thoughts and prayers, give thanks for our accomplishments, and plan future projects. The participation of our officers, committee chairs, and the membership in general fills me with gratitude for all the great people I have surrounding me during my year as Exalted Ruler. Your attendance and efforts are very much appreciated!
District Deputy Sherri Driscoll and guests will be making a required visit to our Lodge on Thursday, October 8th. 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 turnout for the DD visit. I would also love to have a big crowd represent our Lodge in New Bern at the fall state convention in October. See Mark Alderman for registration forms and other details.
Another great benefit ride ended at the Lodge on September 19th with nearly 200 people present for the 9th Annual Layne Creed Memorial Ride, with proceeds going to the Surry County Children's Home. Thanks to all of you who participated in the Sunday corn hole tournaments in September. Check your e-mails and the Lodge Facebook page for upcoming corn hole events.
Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Mark O'Neal, Diane Chamberlain, Tim Richards, and Allen Spence's dad as they battle illness; and Jim Jackson on the passing of his mother (Cody Jackson's grandmother). I am happy to share that Barry Payne's brother Derek is on the mend. 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.

Bluegrass & Beyond
Bluegrass & Beyond is not your typical bluegrass band. While we play mainly traditional bluegrass and bluegrass gospel music, we also like to throw in a few tunes that we call "Beyond Tunes." These are tunes that most everyone knows, but you wouldn't expect to hear them in a bluegrass show. In general, we just have a whole lot of fun and play a whole lot of music.
