Lodge #501 Home
February 2016 is a busy month at the Lodge. We begin the month with a Fish Fry on February 6. The proceeds will be split between Multiple Sclerosis and our Charity Fund. (Thank you Randy and Nancy Bell for donating the fish!) Bring your sweetheart to the Valentine's Dance/Mardi Gras on February 13; see Bruce's Entertainment column for full details. On February 20, our Lodge will host the SW District Government Relations Day. Several of our local State officials are slated to attend, and update us on the focus of activities in Jefferson City. This is a great opportunity to learn what your State officials are working on, and to make them aware of your questions and concerns. Tea Dances, Mixology, entertainment---it is all at the Lodge in February. See your ECHO for a full list of activities. There are activities for everyone this month; check out the ECHO for all of the upcoming events.
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.
