  • ASEA President and Wife Visit Eagle River!

    On Saturday, November 6 Alaska State Elks Association President Andrew Cremata and his wife Brittney will be visiting our Lodge. Andrew, from Skagway Lodge, is the first president in a few years to make an official visitation to Eagle River, and we would like to have a good turnout to let him know we appreciate it. So, we are having a good “comfort food” meal of meatloaf, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans and rolls, all for $10! All the food is being donated and the proceeds are going to our Alaska State Elks Charitable Trust Fund. After dinner we will have karaoke with our new computerized system: over 40,000 songs available! Come on out, eat, howl and meet Andrew and Brittney (We will probably get them to wait tables so if you eat, you will meet them! :-).

  • ENF Most Valuable Student (MVS) Scholarships

    The ENF MVS Scholarship application period closes November 15...any student graduating in 2022 who is planning to go on to further school should apply. The Elks award 500 scholarships through this program each year ranging from $4,000 to $50,000. Also, by entering the MVS competition, the student will be considered for our State Association scholarships as well as awards directly from our Lodge. This coming year the ASEA will be giving over $20,000 in scholarships; our Lodge has not picked a number yet, but last year it was $10,000. BTW, both our state association and our Lodge give Vo-tech scholarships - expect those applications to be out in February.

  • Thanksgiving and Christmas Food Boxes

    Every year our Lodge prepares food boxes for families in our community who need a little help through the holidays. We are preparing them for 12 families for Thanksgiving and probably more at Christmas. The families are identified by school nurses and the Boys and Girls Club. (191) We do not just give them food for a Thanksgiving meal, we give them enough food to last the four days the kids are out of school - cereal, peanut butter and jelly with several loaves of bread...you get the idea. No one should go hungry over the Thanksgiving weekend. As noted above we are using $800 of grant money to help with the boxes (we are saving $1200 for Christmas), but that isn’t enough. We still need our members (who are amazingly generous) to pitch in with some canned goods, cereal, boxed milk, instant potatoes...whatever you think would help. You can drop it off at the Lodge anytime, and it will be much appreciated! THANK YOU!!!

  • VETERAN"S DAY DINNER

    VETERANS DAY DINNER We will be having our annual Veteran’s Day Dinner a couple days after Veteran’s Day this year on Saturday, November 13. Ribs, beans, mojo potatoes and slaw will be served and it is free to veterans of course (you don’t have to be an Elk, just a vet!). There will be a $15 charge for non-veterans for dinner. After dinner entertainment will be the Rocky “Dee” Brown band - they haven’t played here before, but our scouts say they are good! Our small way of thanking our vets!
