JUNE 30, 2020


It’s a great feeling to be able to see and visit with you again. Everyone seems happy to be back!  This is a soft    opening and is subject to change. The office will be open from 9:00-1:00 but all payments, etc. must be handled through the mail slot in the office door.  The office door will remain locked at this time.

We are doing our best to follow Governor Ducey’s and Grand Lodge guidelines. At this time, the main lounge will be closed and locked.  No bar or food service will be held in the main lounge due to social distancing restrictions.  The back bar is open and the 8-top round tables have seating for 4 people at the tableWe have also set up a few small square tables that will seat 2 people only.  Due to new guidelines set forth by Governor Ducey on June 29, 2020, we only have seating for 50 people.  We ask that you please observe social distancing guidelines for the health & safety of our members.  Please do not move tables together or move chairs from one table to another.  NO EXCEPTIONS!! This area is open for food service Monday - Friday from  11:00am – 3:00pm.  The Lodge closes at 4:00pm.  Please, wear a mask when entering or leaving the Lodge and when not seated at a table.  We encourage you to sign the contact tracing log that is located across from the greeter's desk.  This will enable us to contact you easier should we have a member who tests positive for the Covid-19.

Sunday breakfast is served from 9:00am – 12:00pm and will close at 2:00pm.

Elker Helpers will be provided as servers for all meals served.  They will have strict safety guidelines to follow. All volunteers and employees will have their temperature checked upon arrival and will wear masks and gloves.  Safety measures have been put in place. Plexiglass is installed at the greeter’s desk, the cashier’s station and the bar. We will have hand sanitizer stations throughout the Lodge and everyone is encouraged to use them.

You are required to have a current membership card (2020-2021) to enter the Lodge.  Entrance will be restricted to Elk members, spouses, and widows in good standing only. (Each must have their own card).   

Sorry, no guests are allowed.                                                                               

All weekly evening meals served in the dining room or lounge are cancelled until further notice.

While we had hoped to bring back Lounge Bingo and the Queen of Hearts, it has been decided to postponeboh until further notice due to the new executive order by Governor Ducey.

Event Updates

The Inaugural Ball, now called “The Officers Ball” has been rescheduled for September 19. Please hold onto your tickets as they will be honored.  If you need a refund for any reason, mail your tickets to the Lodge Office to my attention and I will see that you get a refund. However, I hope that you will be able to attend, as this will be a wonderful celebration for the Officers as well as the Lodge coming back to life. Tickets are on sale now!!

While I wish we could have everything back to normal, these precautions are being taken for the health and safety of our members.  You, our members are our top priority.  I will update this article as we move forward.  Please check back regularly for any new information.
