    i'm pretty active in the community where I live. A friend of mine on our local town council is very active together with her husband in the local Elks lodge and asked me to join. I'm not good at saying "no" so I said yes.

    I had orientation yesterday and initiation tomorrow.

    I'm wondering if anybody here is an Elk and if so what kind of activities they participate in through the lodge. Any other helpful thoughts are always appreciated

    All I can tell you is that Elks ain't no Masons.

    My dad was an Elk, but it has really died out around here. Everyone used to belong. I don't know where the closest lodge is anymore.

    Nancy hasn't even been gone two months and it's going back to the old ways.

    From what I can tell, it's a way to have a private bar and party spot. Yeah, they do good in the community, but it's more of a social club. I had some bandmates who joined one of the antler clubs for a while. Funny, it was shortly after they fell off the wagon.

    I went hunting for the first time. I shot an elk. I felt really bad at first, but the guy was wearing a plaid leisure suit.

    Nope. There is one requirement for membership that I do not conform to. Same one that prevents me from being a Mason and any number of other fraternal organizations.

    I have played a couple of Elks clubs because I have a friend who was some kind of muckity muck with them. Pretty typical private club/service organization. I am an Eagle, although I'm really only a member because it makes it easier for me to coordinate a charity concert we do every year. It was started by my father--an aerie president for many years--and I've helped them keep it going since he passed away a few years ago. Cheap drinks and nice people, though I only go by there a few times a year and always for meetings where the benefit is discussed. I play in bars and I watch a ton of live music, but I'm really not a guy who hangs out in bars.

    Peace,
