The Elks Auxiliary is now back in action! This long-standing part of the Mount Airy Elks Lodge has been inactive for some time but thanks to some concerned and interested members, we are up and running again. We will concentrate on children's events and activities and would love to have your help with our endeavors. If you are an Elk or the spouse/significant other of an Elk, you are eligible to be a member of the Auxiliary. Our next meeting will be held Tuesday, July 22nd at 7:00 p.m. in the lounge. To become anAuxiliary member, please attend this meeting or contact Shannon Marion at (336)401-3892.
The Auxiliary was formed in 1994 to assist the Elks Lodge in activities and charity fund raisers. There are seven executive officers plus the membership, which has committees to oversee designated projects. Membership is open to the spouse / or fiancee of an Elk in good standing and widows of deceased Elks in good standing at the time of their death. Required age is 21.
Anyone interested in becoming a member of the Auxiliary may obtain an application from any Auxiliary officer or member, complete it and return it to the lodge.
In the lounge, the Auxiliary maintains a bulletin board that keeps you informed of the most recently completed and upcoming projects. Above the board is our mission statement:
To build strength in the Lodge through the unity of families of lodge members. To further the interest and activities of the Lodge in any way we can. To extend our hands to new families, involve spouses, fiancees, and children in events, and help needy people in the community.
In the past year the Auxiliary donated over $4000.00 to charities in our community. In addition to our fundraisers, we have 3 annual children's parties that are free of charge to Elk members and their families.
