Beth and I had a wonderful time visiting the lodge this past April. Susan the server was very nice and we had a great conversation. We also met Brad, the Leading Knight. I received the lodge pins you sent to me and they will be put on the banner with your lodge name and number.

I was a bartender there in 1980... I joined shortly thereafter and stayed a member until I moved away in 1987. Had a lot of friends there, many now gone, I am sure, including Colonel Fred Perry and an old WW1 vet named Louis (who always took his evening tomato soup with a shot of vodka in it and a short beer). As an officer I got up to either loyal Knight or Leading Knight. Just wondering how the old place is... and wondering whatever happened to my old boss, a woman, who managed the place in 1980.

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
