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:

Greetings, as we embrace the warm temperatures of summer. There are so many things that our Elks Lodge can “beat our chest” about as of recent happenings. I was proud to represent your lodge, along with 20+ other elk brothers and sisters at the 2017 NC Elks Spring convention. It was humbling to be seen as the ER of such a great Elks lodge, accepting awards that will be named below.

Congratulations to: Mark Marion -Open 11 O’Clock Toast State Champion, Jacob Cooke-ER 11 O’Clock Toast State Champion. Congratulations to our lodge for a host of awards including: State Americanism and WC district Americanism awards, Camp Care Free Platinum level giving award, Highest Per Capita ENF donation for our district. And last but certainly not least, congratulations to Tommy Marion for taking home the ER of the year for WC district. I took a lot of credit for success that was truly earned by Tommy and you, as devoted members of our great Lodge. The ER ball was a success. Our outgoing ER gave recognition to several deserving Elks. The one and only Mark Alderman was awarded with Officer of the year. Denise Connolly was awarded with Elk of the year, Ray Flippen and Tom Harp were awarded as outstanding Eks and Mark Marion was awarded with Citizen of the year.

There will be a Flag day Celebration on Sunday, June 11th. Members, please attend this wonderful ceremony put on by the Veterans Committee. It is a worthy use of your time to honor your Flag and what stands for and I personally, can’t wait to partake in this event!

The PER committee will be selling tickets to anyone interested for a Sig Sauer P320. Tickets will be sold by members of the PER committee and will go to benefit our local Boy Scout Troops. Please buy some tickets to benefit a great cause and possibly win a sweet prize. My understanding is 1 ticket for 20 or 3 are being sold for 50. You don’t have to be present to win either!

Get your swim suits ready! The pool is slated to open by June 10th. Please remember that we are a private club and all guests must be physically accompanied by a member. If you have questions about rules, please don’t hesitate to ask. A big THANK YOU to those of you who have volunteered your time and equipment, including: Jeff Day, Ray Flippen, Shannon Sutphin, Tom Harp, Norm Marion, Tommy Marion, Mark Alderman and Randy Culler . If I have left anyone out please let me know so that recognition can be given where it is due in our bi-weekly meetings.

Be sure to check your e-mail, our website, our Facebook page, and the monthly calendar for more June events. Please attend as many events as possible to support our Lodge.

Thoughts and prayers go out to the following: Our Country, our Service Men and Women, Debbie Eldridge as she battles cancer. Eileen Kidd, wife to the late PER Gary Kidd, as she deals with the recent loss of her father and husband, Brian Shelton’s wife, Robert Easter’s brother, Ray Flippen's brother, Mark and Sara Marion’s son-in-law, and Terry Scott's wife as they battle illness. 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.
