The ladies of the elks meet once a month. Join a meeting and see what all the fuss is about. The L.O.E. quite a bit for our lodge. They do several different fundraising events throughout the year with the favorite one being the L.O.E. Tea that his held every March. This is an event that many look forward to year after year. The lodge officers serve tea and snacks to attendees. The funds raised through the year go to various projects like purchasing new patio furniture for the lodge or supporting a needy family at Christmas. L.O.E. helps with Elk Races, Paddle wheel, snacks, serving, dinners, raffle baskets and much more. The ladies do enjoy donating their time, but they also enjoy their social outings to the Casino, wine tasting, shopping, and a nice afternoon at the Saturday Market. Stop in and say high. Meeting are held the 4th Tuesday of every month except for June through August.
