We are delighted to have you visit our website. We hope you will take the time to have a look around our site and gain an understanding of what it is to be a modern member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. Find out who we are, what we are, what we do and how you might join our charitable fraternal organization!
The Order of Elks is distinctly American. It is a national, charitable organization founded on the principals of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity. Here in Oregon our two primary children's charities are the Camp Meadowood Springs and the Elks Children's Eye Clinic, part of the Oregon Health and Science University. Through the Elks National Foundation, which is the charitable arm of the Order, we offer local and national scholarship programs. We also offer other Youth Programs such as the Teenager of the Month Awards, Elks Drug Awareness Program, and the Elks National Hoop Shoot Free Throw Contest. Our Veterans are very important to the Elks. The BPOE Elks offer services to our veterans, such as the Elks National Veterans Service Commission, and grants to maintain the Elks Veterans Memorial in Chicago.
Our Lodge is just one of many across the State of Oregon, and across our great Nation... As a member of the Order, you are welcome to visit any of the 2100+ such Lodges in communities all over the country. This is a definite plus if you're traveling for business or pleasure as Elks tend to treat each other like extended family.
We hope that after visiting our corner of the Internet, you will have a better understanding of today's Elks and we possibly peaked your interest in joining our Order and helping us with our worthwhile causes. If you might think we are all work and no play, take a look at our Photo Gallery, our Lodge Calendar and our Entertainment Section! The website is updated frequently so check back often.
If you're in the Oregon City area, please drop in and ask for a tour of our Lodge. Visitors are always welcome.
