Welcome to our Lodge Webpage! 

Mark Guilmett, Exalted Ruler

2024-2025


Looking forward to better weather and happy that the winter weather is behind us. A big shout out to those who have been working hard volunteering their spare time at the lodge for some much-needed upkeep. We’ve done some cleaning of the storage areas, hall and cleaning up the outside. I appreciate all your hard work. May is going to be a busy month. We have the State Convention from May 2 nd to the 5th and as always a great time spending with other lodge members. Also, the Kids Fishing Derby on May 11th, and Mother’s Day breakfast and Service on May 12th. On Tuesday, May 14th we will be having a registration night for Copper Cannon Summer Camp for any underprivileged child. This is the NH State Elks major project. It provides a week of summer camp at no charge.

Hope all our members have a great Memorial Day weekend remembering what this day means. One team, One fight.

Sincerely and fraternally yours, Mark Guilmett, Exalted Ruler, PER

Important Info for 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.
