Mount Airy Elks Lodge #2061


We're glad you stopped by!

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.


2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:00 PM

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 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.

ER Says

Brother and Sister Elks:

Cancelled due to Hurricane Matthew: On October 7th, 8th, and 9th, our Motorcycle Committee will be leading a tribute ride to honor our military veterans. This "Mountains to the Coast" ride will begin in Mount Airy and end in Wilmington. All Lodges in the state have been invited to participate in the event. All Elks and their guests (on a motorcycle or in a vehicle) can join the ride at any of three designated locations across the state. See any member of the Motorcycle Committee for details.

Dennis Dowling, our district deputy will be attending our Lodge meeting on October 13th. Please bring a covered dish for our meal before the meeting.

We will be doing a benefit chicken stew on October 22nd for Mike "Springer" Chilton to help with medical bills from his motorcycle accident. Contact Ruth Ann Harold for details.

We have the NFL football games playing on five different televisions in the lounge every Thursday night and Sunday. Food is available to purchase on Sundays. We will have a featured game of the week on Sundays as well. Come enjoy the games, food, and fellowship.

For those that were not able to attend or be involved in the Layne Creed Memorial Ride last month, you really missed a great time. There was lots of food, fun, music and fellowship. This was the tenth and final year of the ride. It has been an honor and privilege for me to have been a part of this event for several years. I am also glad that the Lodge has been able to help the Creed family with this moumental endeavor that has raised thousands of dollars to benefit several worthwhile organizations in our area.

Please keep the following people in your thoughts and prayers: Pete Wood and Gary Kidd as they battle illnesses; Warren King and Mike Smith as they recover from surgery; Brian Shelton's father as he recovers from bypass surgery; Barry Edmonds on the passing of his niece; Mark Alderman's father as he recovers from a stroke, Stan Lowe as his stepfather enters Golden Living Center; Zach Williams' aunt as she recovers from a fall; Patsy Atkins' sister as she battles cancer, Terry Scott's wife Janice and Melvin Jackson as they experience health problems. 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!

Most Valuable Student Contest 2017

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 ENF is investing 3.74 million in college scholarships for our nation’s future leaders. We’ve invested wisely. MVS scholars—all of whom demonstrate scholarship, leadership and financial need—are graduating from college at a rate of nearly 90 percent, about 40 percent higher than the national average.

In addition, The NC Elks Association awards Nursing scholarships to applicants accepted in qualified NC Schools of Nursing. The Nursing Scholarship Application can be downloaded 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. Applications for the 2017 contest are available online at The deadline is November 30, 2016. The 500 national winners will be announced in late April 2017, after the top 20 finalists participate in the Leadership Weekend in Chicago, April 6-9, 2017.
