Welcome to our Lodge! 

MESSAGE FROM OUR EXALTED RULER

One way for our Lodge to continue to succeed is to keep all members involved. Joining a league, attending a function or becoming a Lodge officer are some of the different ways you can contribute. We currently have two empty Officer positions. We need to look to the future to keep the Lodge continuing for years to come. New people equal new ideas to keep us moving in that direction. If you are interested in becoming an officer, please contact myself or any of the current officers. We are all willing to work with you and look forward to making this the best Lodge possible. 

Jim Clark, Exalted Ruler 2019-2020

FRIDAY NIGHT SUPPER VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!  

The Friday night Supper committee is asking for new volunteers. We have had some of our volunteers retire after years of volunteer service. The Friday night supper team has always put forward a great effort to provide a quality meal and good Service to our Members. Their efforts have also provided good fundraising opportunities for Lodge Improvements and donations to local non-profits. We need your help to continue this high level of service. Positions needed: wait staff, prep work, dishwashers and buss people. Please contact Bob Benoit in person or call 603 285-1756 to be added to the list.

************************************************************************************************************

An important reminder to our Members  

In accordance with State Liquor Laws, all non-members MUST BE SIGNED IN by a member. This includes spouses or significant others. A Member can sign in up to four (4) guests. Members who sign in a guest are responsible for their guest. Guest must leave when the sponsoring member leaves, unless another member signs the guest in and assumes the responsibility for that guest. NOTE: DELINQUENT or UNAFFILIATED (dropped) Elks CANNOT be signed in as a guest. If delinquent, they must pay their dues, if unaffiliated (dropped), they must be reinstated. 

REMEMBER – If your guest is not your spouse or significant other, and they live within the jurisdiction of this Lodge, you can only sign them in three times – after that they must either join the Lodge or stop coming in as a guest.
