Lodge #501 Home
The trees are starting to put on their Autumn attire, and it's almost time to start thawing the turkey. At this time of year, we are especially mindful of our many blessings. As Elks, Veterans' Day serves as a reminder to be thankful to those who gave so much that we might enjoy the many freedoms we have. We will celebrate their sacrifices by having a Flag Retirement Ceremony on November 13, with the assistance of the Joplin JROTC. I hope you can join us for this solemn ceremony. The Lodge will be open on Thanksgiving Day, with the officers serving as your "wait staff". Jim Willis will once again be hosting a Thanksgiving Dinner beginning at noon. There is a Christmas Basket planning meeting scheduled for November 7 at 2pm; please come out and see how you can get involved! There is a lot going on in November! Like Elks across this nation, your Lodge is moving ahead and "Meeting the Challenge", Come out and meet some new members, enjoy the entertainment, and catch up with the "regulars". There are lots of activities scheduled for the month; check out the monthly newsletter and the weekly "shouts" for updates and further information.
Joplin Lodge #501 was instituted May 15, 1899, and remains committed to serving the needs of the "four-state" area. As members of the premier charitable organization in our nation, we offer scholarships to area High School Seniors, support our Veterans, and participate in the other charitable programs of the Grand Lodge.
We are located at 1802 West 26th Street, Joplin, MO. We open daily at 11am.
