Don Roy, PDD (

from Saratoga-Wilton, NY, Lodge #161

Holly and I just Stayed overnight in our RV at Louisville Lodge #8. Great setup and what a wonderful lodge. A lodge is only as good as its members and this lodge has some great people. Special thanks to our new friends Julie, Jamie, Janet, Elizabeth, Mark, Ed (longest member) and Rita. When I leave New York, I would love to move to Louisville and be a member at the "top five still alive". Thank you all and we hope to see you again soon.

Looks like a wonderful Lodge! I wish I would have had the time to stop in but the flight schedule just did not permit it this time. Hopefully in the future I'll be able to stop in. Have a wonderful new Lodge year and I will make every effort to stop in your hospitality room during Grand Lodge 2019.

My wife and i stopped by on our drive to Michigan and were welcomed with open arms. Julie and everyone else we met were very gracious and we especially enjoyed the extensive pin collection being put together by Julie. I will be sending her pins from Traverse City and my home lodge in Boca Raton soon.

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 page. We have a very content rich site. Featured pages are [Facilites], [Officers], [Elks'n the News], [Extra Pages](includes rich history of our lodge) and especially our [Photo Gallery].

If ever your in San Diego please come to our Lodge and look us up. Sincerely, Wayne and Elizabeth Laner

Rick Mitchell (

Dear Friends, I want to again thank all of you for having me out to your Christmas Party last Sat. Night. When I said that the Elks Lodge # 8 is truly one of my favorite places to play, I meant it !!! I understand that you can't please all the people all the time. I just try to please most of the people most of the time. If I ever get the priviledge of playing any of your functions again, I have come up with a great idea....about 2 weeks before the show, I am going to put song request slips in the bar area that can be filled out and then I will pick them up 2 days before to make sure I have all of your requests. I had a great time and I hope you all did too. The best of the Christmas season to you and yours and the happiest of 2007. Continue doing the GREAT work that your Lodge does as I keep up with it, via this website. Again thanks to all of you !!

I'm doing some genealogy and believe my great grandfather was a member of your lodge. He is buried in the Cave Hill cemetery and died in 1900. He was born around 1859 and his name was Carl Toggweiler. I believe his lodge was #8. He abandoned his family (as was the legend) however there is always another side. I would be interested in any info you may have or where I could look. I live in Iowa but may be travelling through your state in Jan. Thank-you
