Lodge #186 Home
Our Lodge is striving to be a Fragrance Free Lodge.
An increasing number of individuals these days are diagnosed with Multiple Chemical Sensitivity (MCS). When people who suffer from MCS are exposed to even relatively low levels of chemicals that are irritants to them, such as perfumes, colognes, sometimes cleaners or tobacco smoke, they can suffer such symptoms as migraines, asthma, upper respiratory issues, skin irritation, sore throat, and nausea. There is no cure for MCS, no pill one can take to prevent MCS. If one suffers from MCS, it can be crippling. More and more workplaces are establishing fragrance free zones to accommodate employees who suffer from MCS so that they can have a safe, healthy work environment that does not trigger such medical symptoms.
We ask that when you prepare to come to the lodge, keep in mind that some of your fellow Olympia Elks members suffer from MCS. Remember, we are the Benevolent and, Protective Order of Elks.
Each Wednesday we will have our Social time from 5-8pm with the Queen of Hearts drawing at 7:00pm.
We have BINGO on Tuesdays at our earlier start time of 6:30pm. We also play BINGO on Thursday starting at 1:00pm Please arrive early as we are taking additional steps to seat people to keep everyone safe. Masks are now required so please bring and to wear your Mask. Maintain Social Distancing, Sanitation is a priority.
