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.

Past Exalted Rulers and Motorcycle Committee Community Projects

Helping out WWII Veteran, Harvey Heath

The Mt. Airy Elks PER Association recently completed a project of construction work to help make Harvey Heath's home more wheelchair accessible. While they were there, Harvey asked if they could help him setup a makeshift flag pole so he could display his flags.

The Mt. Airy Elks Motorcycle Committee heard about the request and went one better; they purchased and installed a nice flag pole and supplied both a United States Flag and a POW Flag for him
