How can I help out the Elks Lodge?

There are many ways you can help! Paying your dues can certainly help because dues are the single most important source of income we have. You can also volunteer to help. Each week I am going to describe a job that currently is not being done that would make our lodge a stronger leader in the community if it were filled.
