We Love Our Leo's  Says Stephanie Hammond, our very special Elk's member who wanted to buy lunch for our law enforcement officers.  So she started a fundraising project that has produced huge success.  She personally sends a great big thank you for the overwhelming support making lunch possible

   We made the front page - see more click here.....

The final LEO Lunch was recognized in the

Union....see the link CLICK HERE

We have received enough donations to have a few more lunches for our Law Enforcement Agencies and Fire Departments.

Thank you so much for your support.

Sincerely,

Stephanie Hammond, 

Grass Valley Elks Lodge #538 Member"

SHOW THAT YOU CARE ABOUT OUR 1STIES

1913 Official Dedication of Grass Valley Elks Lodge 538 

One of our Nation's oldest operating Lodges (since 1900) in their original building.

So many Elks' contributions to growing community.

So many charity dollars spent to support our local community.

120 years of historical, and well preserved community history integrated with our Elks Lodge.

from the Haps....The Trustees held a special meeting on 5/29/20 and decided that due to the questionable liability coverage from our insurance carrier and for your protection - the Lodge building, with their regrets, must be locked. 
If you feel access to the building is necessary, please email the Secretary@grassvalleyelks.org

 

continued from the Haps 6/05/20  Hardy Schwarz writes....
 

     The consequences of the coronavirus and slowing its spread.

     Governments on all levels have closed businesses and institutions, including  our lodges.

     Our "highest priority is the health and well-being of our members, volunteers, guests, and staff."

     The GER has said, "Our lodges have been closed and our activities have been suspended."

     The DD has informed us that that our AON insurance does not cover us when engaged in unauthorized activities.

     Lodges have lost their ABC licenses and/or charters for violations during this lockdown.

 

This list of reasons could go on.

 

The Trustees are just as eager to re-open our lodge as every other member.  We are awaiting guidelines from the county government, Grand Lodge, and the CDC.  However, we must abide by the most stringent criteria.  We have lost almost 1/4 of our Elk year.  Re-opening will not be a simple task, because it must be done properly.  Hopefully, it will be accomplished sooner rather than later.

 

Until we meet again, stay healthy and safe, and remember the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherhood, and Fidelity.
