Lodge #501 Home

And the "Dog Days of Summer" are upon us, although from the mild weather one would not believe it until you look at the calendar.  There are many activities going on this month at the Lodge; keep your newsletter calendar at hand so you don't miss any of them!  The annual Luau is scheduled for August 19; be sure to get your tickets early.  No matter what the weather, rain or shine, remember the Lodge is always open.  Come out and "catch up" with old friends, and get acquainted with some new friends!

We have lots of illness in our Lodge family at this time.  Please remember these dear ones in your thoughts and prayers. We hope to see each of them back at the Lodge very soon!!!

We have come a long way from May 22, 2011; however, the road has been a long and rocky one, filled with potholes and "speed bumps".  We have lost many friends along the way, and their names remain inscribed on the tablets of love and memory, as well as in our hearts.  And we have gained so many new friends on this journey.  The members of the Webb City Lodge are the exemplification of "Brotherly Love" and "Fidelity". They opened their arms and the doors of their Lodge to us when we lost our Lodge home in the tornado of May 2011, and made us feel like "family". We owe them a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

We also greatly appreciate those at 4th Street Bowl who graciously "stepped up" to fill the void left by the loss of our building. Our legendary "Speed Bar" and "Slow Bar" are both gone, however the heart of Elkdom remains strong in Joplin.

Joplin Elks Lodge 501 is located at 1802 West 26th, in Joplin, Missouri. Lodge 501 was founded in 1899 and enjoys a heritage that is steeped with the best of Elk Traditions. Nestled in the Heart of the Ozarks in SouthWest Missouri, Joplin has a population of 46,000. The population within a 40 mile radius of Joplin is 400,000, making it Missouri's 4th largest metropolitan area.

We invite all guests of the web site to sign our guest book and please feel free to let us know how we are doing. Meetings are the second and fourth Thursdays of each month, and begin at 7pm.
