Lodge #501 Home
It's February. Take a look at the calendar posted under the "News" tab; there are lots of opportunities for fun and fellowship coming this month.
On Saturday, February 14, we will celebrate two February holidays: Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras. Come out to hear the Route 66 Swing Band; I am certain you will enjoy them and admission is only one new stuffed animal or toy for our annual Easter event. On Thursday, February 26, our annual PER Night initiation will occur. It is great to see these men, who have made (and continue to make) contributions of their time and talent for the benefit of our Lodge and Elkdom, perform the initiation ceremony. And to end the month, we will enjoy "Dueling Pianos" in the Lounge!
In addition to the "bar food" in the Lounge, the following will be served in February:
Wed. Feb 4 Chicken Annie's Dinner 6-7:30pm
Fri. Feb 13 Meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans, roll 6-7:30pm
Wed. Feb 18 Fried chicken Dinner 6-7:30pm
Fri. Feb 27 Open face beef sandwich, mashed potatoes, gravy, corn, roll 6-7:30pm
Sat. Feb 28 Bar food, 6pm - 8pm
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.
