Update, The Lodge is now closed thru at least December 13
Per the latest Order from the Los Angeles County Health Officer.
The Emblem Club has decided to Cancel their Holiday Bazaar, which had been scheduled for Saturday November 28th.


Effective Immediately the Lodge is Closed for  2 Weeks
The Lodge is Closed effective immediately for 2 weeks.

The BOD recently became aware that a member of our Lodge tested positive for COVID-19. Since members of our staff were in contact Wednesday with a member who received a positive Covid Test result on Thursday for a Test initiated on Tuesday, they cannot return to work until they too are tested. The BOD has voted to close the Lodge for 2 weeks to be safe.

While we are unable to identify the individual due to the confidential nature of the medical information, we can share that it has been 2 days since the individual was last in attendance.

If you were at the Lodge on Wednesday November 18th or Thursday November 19th, we recommend that you self-quarantine at home for 14 days.

We encourage all of our members to continue social distancing, washing your hands, and monitoring symptoms. If at any time, you begin to develop symptoms of COVID-19 (such as cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, repeated shaking with chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, or new loss of taste or smell), please stay home and call your healthcare provider for next steps.

To ensure your safety, we have taken steps to properly clean the facility, as we do every night.

If you have questions, please feel free to contact the Office. Thank you for your support in these efforts and your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we work together to promote the health and well-being of our community.


Culver Closet needs Winter Clothing Donations
Culver Closet is an agency that helps support the Homeless and Under Privileged children in Culver city and we support them, message follows:
Culver Closet will be hosting the 4th Annual Winter Wear Giveaway.  It's scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 17th to be held in our open parking lot near Culver Park High School, from 12 noon - 4 pm. (Backpacks for Kids pick up time).  We're informing our partners of our next event to solicit their support.
