Why Join The Elks

Through our involvement in state and national Elks programs, the Norwin Elks:

  • Supports  college scholarships through donations to the Elks National Foundation.
  • Supports youth  athletics by having an annual Hoop Shoot Contest every January.
  • Drug Awareness 
  • Programs for the elderly and veterans.

"Elks Care and Elks Share

 “Elks Care and Elks Share” is more than just our motto, it is our character and purpose.

Enjoy the fellowship of coming to the Lodge’s social functions and enjoy the ambiance with other members. Belonging to the Lodge is a great thing and is not just a place of parties and inexpensive libation. As an Elks Lodge (not a club) we have a purpose and a task to perform. That in a nutshell means we stand for programs such as our veterans,  our Home Nurses and the Elks National Foundation just to name a few. We carry out many programs for our youth and also help local causes. 

If you are looking for something meaningful that truly makes a difference in your local community and the lives of  others, and if you want to meet new and interesting people who share your values and commitments to our country, then you’ve  found it.

While it is true that our lodge dues are higher than many of the local clubs, the majority of the dues help pay the bills including upkeep of the lodge and the grounds.


Joining the Norwin Elks

Have you been thinking about joining the Norwin Elks Lodge? 

Here are your first steps:

  • If you know a current Elks member, contact them and have them take you by the lodge to experience the social quarters or to an event to experience the fun. 
  • If you don’t know a member, come by the lodge during business hours and enter our lodge through the double doors at the front of the building. Press the doorbell to the left of the next door. The bartender will open the door (when  you hear the buzzer, open the door). Walk in and introduce yourself to the bartender, let them know you are interested in joining and ask for an application. 
  • You can either fill the application out at the lodge or take it home to fill out and return it later. Be sure to fill out the sections "To Be Answered by the Applicant" and (APPLICANT) only.    
  • You can also download and print our Membership Application, fill out the application and return it to the lodge in person.  
  • Once you fill the application out, give the completed application to the bartender along with $25.00, which goes towards your annual dues. 
  • The bartender will give you a receipt. Make sure you get a receipt.

It’s as easy as that! The entire process takes at least a month.


To be eligible for membership in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, you must be a citizen  of the United States over the age of 21 who believes in God.
