Elyria Elks Lodge #465 – Who We Are
The Elyria Elks Lodge 465 is a proud chapter of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America. We have been serving Elyria and its surrounding communities with acts of charity and service for over one hundred and twenty years. We are comprised of American citizens that are aligned to the Elks cardinal virtues: Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity which serve to guide our actions on a daily basis. As Elks, we subscribe to the principle that the influence of a good deed honestly and promptly performed will last forever.
In addition to our charitable and philanthropic works we offer many Lodge sponsored activities which bring our members together in social settings that promote fellowship and member interaction. We are particularly proud of the fact that we sponsor many athletic, citizenship and scholarship competitions focused on the youth in our community.
We are over 650 members strong and growing! We respect our history but embrace the future and remain steadfast to our collective goal of serving the changing needs of a diverse population, our youth and our military veterans of all ages.
