Care To Join Us?

Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.

Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet need, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.

Giving Back to the Community

Every year, Elks Lodge 270 supports many causes in the local area.

We assisted the Jr. ROTC and presented a check to their organization to represent New Albany High School in Hawaii.
