Greetings from Prescott Lodge #330 "Mother Lodge of Arizona". In December of 1895 a group of enterprising businessmen in Prescott, sturdy products of the early west, charted the original petition for a dispensation and later established the Prescott Lodge. Prescott and Prescott Valley, Arizona, are located about 90 miles northwest of Phoenix. With our mile high elevation (5230 ft), the cities enjoy a four-season climate with both mild winters and summers. Check out our elks.org page. We have a very content rich elks.org site. Featured pages are [Facilites], [Officers], [Elks'n the News], [Extra Pages](includes rich history of our lodge) and especially our [Photo Gallery]. If you have time after looking it over please sign our [Guest Book]. Thank you

Hello Lodge 31, Like everyone else I just want to greet you all. I see that you sold and moved. Can you tell me how that all went. Gain members or have a decline in membership. Taxes better, heat bills, etc. We have someone give us a price for our building and then all hell broke out. Again, enjoy Elkdom! Ron

Elks Are Hypocrites (none@msn.com)

September 5, 2004 the BPO Elks USA Web Site, Elks.Org, proclaimed “BPO Elks Pledges Aid to Florida Hurricane Victims” and yet the Elks here in Ocala, FL have not only neglected, but refused to help their own neighbors who suffered damages from their trees.

Sunday, September 5, 2004 Hurricane Frances came through Ocala, FL and knocked down several large trees from the Elks Lodge property located at 702 NE 25th Ave in Ocala, FL which fell onto our property and crushed 80’ feet of our fence. While neighbors all over the State of Florida took responsibility for damage cause by their tress to their neighbors property, this Elks Lodge has refused to remove their trees from our property and fix our fence damaged by their trees. They have not even taken the time to come here and look at the mess.

My wife & I wrote numerous officials within the Elks organization, including a Mr. Sid Carter who is an official at the lodge in Ocala, their Exalted Ruler Mr Harold Floyd, Mr. Jack Jensen Grand Secretary of the Elks National in Chicago, Elks USA Grand Lodge Headquarters in Chicago, Mr. Frank Palladini Florida Elks State President, Mr. James M. McQuillan, the Grand Exalted Ruler and the President of the Elks.

On December 5, 2006 I wrote the current Grand Exalted Ruler and the President of the Elks, Mr. Louis James Grillo about this matter and have received no reply.

If average Joe good neighbors all over the state of Florida can accept responsibility for damage caused by trees to their neighbors property and repair the damage, the Elks who touts themselves as a philanthropic organization, should more than any neighbor in Florida do the right thing and remove their trees from our property and repair the damage to our fence. The Elks failure and refusal to do so is hypocrisy personified, and unless they have a change of heart, I feel that the world needs to be made aware of how we are being treated. This Elks Lodge's claim of an "Act of God" to avoid responsibly is an outrage.

At the top of their web elks.org site it says "The Benevolent and & Protective Order of the Elks". In their Motto and Creed, they state "Elks Care – Elks Share". In our case, the Elks has proved that they are NOT Benevolent and do NOT care!

Damage estimates are over $1,200. Our deductible is 1% which equals $1,370. out of pocket before the insurance pays one dime which means we will have to pay for all of the damages out of our own pocket.

I think this is an outrage which needs to be reported so people will know what hypocrites and bad neighbors this Elks Lodge at 702 NE 25th Ave in Ocala, FL has turned out to be.

As of this date, September 25, 2009 the damage still exists and the Elks has done nothing!

It seems that the Elks loves doing good for others as long as they are getting good publicity and positive press.

WHAT IS THIS COUNTRY COMING TO ??????? I CHECKED IT ON SNOPES & IT SAYS: TRUE !

This should make your blood boil...it DOES mine!

ABC NEWS BANS FLAG LAPEL PINS!

YESTERDAY THE BRASS AT ABC NEWS ISSUED ORDERS FORBIDDING REPORTERS TO WEAR LAPEL PIN AMERICAN FLAGS OR OTHER PATRIOTIC INSIGNIA. THEIR REASONING WAS THAT ABC SHOULD REMAIN NEUTRAL ABOUT 'CAUSES'.

SINCE WHEN IS SUP P ORT FOR PREVENTING DEATH AND DESTRUCTION SOME SORT OF A 'CAUSE'? SINCE WHEN IS PATRIOTISM TO BE DISCOURAGED?

I URGE YOU TO BOYCOTT ABC AND ITS SPONSORS AND AFFILIATES. WE ARE SLOWLY LOSING EVERYTHING OUR COUNTRY STANDS FOR AND EVERYTHING OUR MEN AND WOMEN FOUGHT AND DIED TO PRESERVE!

PLEASE FORWARD THIS TO AS MANY AS YOU CAN. THIS HAS BEEN VERIFIED THROUGH: http://www.snopes.com/rumors/noflags.asp

I will be in Syracuse April 20th thru the 22nd and will be stopping by to check out your new lodge. I am an animal control officer from Cicero Illinois and will be reuniting a stolen cat with its owners who live in Canada. Maybe we could do the reuniting at your lodge, great for publicity. I look forward to meeting you all.
