Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.
Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet needs, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.
At the Elks Lodge veterans come first and formost, with a dedication to the United States Constitution and the laws that are set forth in our great country, a love for the flag and what it represents.
A new year has begun. I would like to start out by saying
thank you to John Hofer for his dedication the past two
years and to all our great lodge members for putting their
faith in me and all the dedicated officers that will assist
me in the year to come.Our lodge is doing well and we will persist in striving to keep it that
way. The past couple years we have made improvments to make our
lodge and lounge one to be proud of. There are more ideas and improvements pending so continue to visit often to see them take place.
The Tennessee Elks Annual Convention is coming up April 3-6 at the Edgewater Hotel in Gatlinburg. To attend, you must register at the hotel to obtain a badge. There is a $35 fee for the badge that will allow you to visit the hospitality suites, attend the memorial service and the business meeting. This convention is a great place to meet Elk members from around our state and have good time without traveling to far. Please mark your calendars and attend this fun and informative event.
Finally, thank you to all our fantastic members for your continued support
of the lodge. Please visit often, our lodge needs all of us !!!
We want to say hello to our new members, Greg Yarbrough, Jakie Moore, Margaret (Peggy) Ray & Steven Cross
