"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,

Dan Gerth, President

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the USA has joined forces with Donate Life America to increase donations of organs, eyes and life-saving tissue.

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."

Los Alamos VideoOn behalf of the Los Alamos Elk's Lodge BPOE 2083 and its members, we would like to thank all of those who participated in serving and protecting this great community during the Las Conchas Fire. We cannot express our appreciation enough. Thank You!
Our thoughts and prayers are with our neighbors that have lost their homes, possessions, and livelihood as a result of the fire. We hope that some semblance of normalcy will return to your lives soon. As we did during the Cerro Grande Fire, it was an honor and a privilege to offer our Lodge as a community center, offering hot meals, coffee, water, snacks, toiletries and hospitality to those who worked so tirelessly to protect our community during the evacuation. It is amazing to look back and realize that we served approximately 14,000 meals over the course of the week.
There are so many that volunteered their time, money or goods to ensure that we could serve the community. Thank you, Smith's Grocery Store, Los Alamos CO-OP, LANL Foundation, Los Alamos National Bank, Merrick Company, Santa Fe Food Depot, Premier Distributing Co., De Colores Restaurant, Blue Window Bistro, Los Alamos VFW, Sysco, O Eating House, Hot Rocks Java, Walmart, Thai Café, and numerous others that supported our efforts. There are too many individual volunteers to list in this letter, however, please know that your efforts have not been overlooked.
In closing, we met and came to know many of the emergency workers that spent a week or more in our community and we hope that our efforts were reflective of how much we appreciated your diligence and perseverance in battling the fire. Thank you, Wildland Firefighters, Helitack crews, National Guard, State Police, LAFD, LAPD, LAMC staff & LA County employees! It is a tough job that you have, and we hope you found a little comfort within our walls, even if it was for a short period of time. (To see the YouTube video, click the photo, or Click Here)
