Homer Elks Lodge #2506.


This website is designed to provide information on who, what, where and why the Elks of America exist.


To begin with, The Benevolent and Protective  Order of Elks was established in 1868 in NYC by prominent professionals for social purposes.  In time, the Order was instrumental in local community acts of charity which would become part of the mission statement.


The Elks have become the nation’s largest fraternal organization with over 2 million members.
