It’s Official! The Elks Riders motorcycle group has come to Lodge 1291.
As of June 2016, the Lakeland Lodge has the newest chapter of Elk Riders USA in Florida. There is a great deal of excitement about this new auxiliary in the Lodge and everyone is welcome to participate. If you own and ride your own bike you can join us as a Full member or if you just like to ride with someone else we gladly welcome you as an Associate member. Of course, we also encourage those who would like to help us spread the word of Elkdom and help us with our charitable ventures to join us as Associate members.

We are very excited to be on this committee this year, and we are off to a great start. Armed Forces Day was a great success, we served over 90 meals, including 19 Veterans! We would like to thank EVERYONE that was involved with this event, from donating, cooking, volunteering, and attending. Your support never ceases to amaze me. We have secured a date for our annual James A. Haley VA Hospital cook-out, and it is Sunday OCTOBER 9th. We will provide more details as it gets closer to the event, but wanted to get the date out, as we will need your assistance to make this successful. We look forward to a great year and will strive to do our best. Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Kristen or myself. Again, I would like to thank you for your support, and leave you with the following quote.
“Honor to the soldier and sailor everywhere, who bravely bears his country’s cause. Honor, also, to the citizen who cares for his brother in the field and serves, as he best can, the same cause.”
― Abraham Lincoln
