From Our State President
Albert Ingraham, PDDGER
Welcome to the Maine Elks Association website. We hope that you take the opportunity to look around our newly redesigned website and learn more about our great organization. As Elks, we invest in our communities through programs that support our youth, our veterans, and improve the quality of life for those less fortunate in our communities. Our Elk Lodges are much more than a center for social activities. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children learn and grow in a safe and friendly environment. We have committed ourselves to serving others, and since 1928, we have donated tens of millions of dollars in charitable giving to the people and communities of Maine, we currently have 20 Elk Lodges from York to Presque Isle spread across the state, and we are over 10,000 members strong. We encourage you to look around the website, and if you like what you see, consider clicking on the membership link which will help guide you on your way toward joining us in our efforts.
Since 1868, the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks have prided themselves on being a central part of communities across America. We are a distinctively American fraternal organization with over 750,000 men and women members spread across the country. Our motto is Elks Care—Elks Share, and we live up to that motto each day through our many programs that provide service to our youth, our veterans, charities, and our communities. To be eligible to become a member, you must be a citizen of the United States of America, be at least 21 years of age, and believe in God.
