The Elks Point of View

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks is a nationwide organization of well over a million of America's finest citizens. We love our country and desire to preserve its cherished institutions, traditions and values; respect our neighbors and constantly seek to promote their well-being; love and enjoy life and believe this enjoyment is increased by sharing it with family, friends and all with whom we come in contact.

To Elks, laughter is better than tears, and a kind word more powerful than a frown. The dream of a better world becomes reality when shaped by enough willing hearts and hands.

We seek to bring into our family only those who delight in wholesome associations with congenial companions, who possess a deep sense of patriotism, fair play and dedication to noble causes - persons who find the fulfillment of their existence in service to humanity, feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, aiding those in distress; proving themselves to be true friends to all in need.

We question no one's religion, nor do we exclude anyone because of creed, race, ethnic origin, educational attainment, vocation, material status or physical stature. We measure character by what one is and does, not by titles or position. We do not ask you to change any beliefs, nor interfere with your present life, nor act contrary to the dictates of conscience. In point of fact we encourage you to put your personal beliefs into practice more strongly in these areas; your associates want you to enjoy life more by becoming a better American and humanitarian.
