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

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.

Flag Day 2018

Sunday, June 10 2PM
flag day ceremony scouts raise flag

Patriotism has characterized the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America since the early days of the organization. Allegiance to the flag of our country is a requirement of every member. In 1907, the Grand Lodge of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks designated, by resolution, June 14 as Flag Day. The Elks prompted President Woodrow Wilson to recognize the Order's observance of Flag Day for its patriotic expression. But it was not until 1949 when President Harry Truman, himself a member of the Elks, made the proclamation that thereafter June 14 would be a day of national observance for the symbol of our country. It was through his Elks Lodge in Independence, Missouri, that President Truman got the idea for a national observance of Flag Day.

Please join us at Mt. Airy Elks Lodge for our Flag Day celebration on June 10 at 2PM. With the assistance of Boy Scout Troop #538 we will retire our old flag and replace it with a new one. Refreshments will be provided.

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.

PER association will be making their way back to Raven Knob for a group photograph at the site of the new picnic shelter they constructed for the local boy scouts. Photos from the dedication ceremony are can be found here

The dedication of the Raven Knob picnic shelter plaque will take place on Wednesday, June 20. All Elks are invited! Meet at the lodge at 5:30PM or be at the site at Raven Knob at 6PM.

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.
