Mount Airy Elks Lodge #2061


We're glad you stopped by!

Welcome to Mount Airy, NC Lodge No. 2061, of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America! 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.

COVID-19 Update

Beginning Thursday, March 11, 2021 Mount Airy Elks Lodge will reopen following CDC recommendations for masks and social distancing.

Help the Elks spread Christmas Cheer! The Angel Tree is starting up November 20, and the Elks Lodge will be sponsoring several needy families. Please stop by the lounge and take some tags from the tree. Each tag specifies a requested gift. Shop and return the unwrapped gift along with the tag to the lodge by December 21. Families will pick up the gifts on December 23.

Not a shopper? Not a problem! You can make a monetary donation to the Christmas Committee (see Denise) and some of our Elk Elves will do the shopping for you!

Christmas Food Drive

November 20 through December 21

In conjunction with the Angel Tree, we try to provide each sponsored family with some extra groceries to help out while the kids are out of school for the holidays. Canned goods, pantry staples, and non-perishables are needed. Drop them off in the lounge anytime before December 21. Monetary donations are welcome too! See Doug Norman or Randy Culler and we'll stock these families up!
