"Become an Elk"On behalf of the New Mexico Elks Association, I would like to welcome you to New Mexico! From our mountains in the North, to our deserts in the South, we have something for everyone. We are not only geographically diverse, but our combination of Hispanic, Native American and Anglo cultures offers a truly unique Southwestern experience.
Our 23 Lodges are spread all across the state – from Farmington and Raton in the far North, Tucumcari and Clovis-Portales in the East, Gallup and Silver City in the West and Carlsbad and El Paso to the South, wherever you go in New Mexico there is an Elks Lodge close by.
Our State project is Cerebral Palsy, dedicated to providing assistance to the children afflicted with this disease and their families. The New Mexico Elks CP program developed the “walkable” physical therapy system which is now in use in several states across the country. We also provide grants for research into the disease and alternative forms of therapy.
So come and visit us; mile high turquoise blue skies, white sand deserts, incredible mountain vistas and friendly people await you. One word of warning – color does not determine how hot the chile is; red can be as hot as or hotter than green, and vice versa. Try either, or be adventurous and get both; we call that “Christmas.”
And don’t forget to stop in one of our Lodges – you won’t regret it!
Sincerely and Fraternally,
New Mexico Elks Association, 2015-2016
The Grand Lodge, Fraternal Committee is asking Elks Lodges nationwide to promote the Organ Donor Program in their Lodge Bulletins and Lodge Web sites to help inspire members and citizens in their communities to make these life-saving donations.
The need is paramount. More than 110,000 patients were waiting for organ transplants as of March 2011, according to the Donate life America Web site, www.donatelife.net. Only 28,663 organ transplants had been performed in 2010, and even fewer - 14,502 - organ donations had been made in that year.
We Elks Members can help close the gap! The effort of Lodges to promote the program through their Bulletins and Web site can gain them five points in their quests to be named an All American Lodge. More incentives will be announced in coming years as the program takes shape throughout Elkdom.
For more information on the importance of donation and how to become a registered donor in your state, click on the Donate Life icon to go to the Donate LifeSM web-site, or by logging onto www.donatelife.net. This is a great way to show that "Elks Give from the Heart."
