We welcome you to browse our web site and familiarize
 yourself with our Lodge. Like other Lodges throughout the
 United States, we are committed to uphold the principles
 and supporting the goals of the Benevolent and Protective
 Order of Elks. The principles of our Order are: Charity,
 Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity.   

     Our Lodge is located in Gilroy, California, The Garlic
 Capital of the World and the Home of the Gilroy Garlic
 Festival, which is always held on the fourth full weekend
 of July.  We are located on a hilltop west of Gilroy on
 Highway 152, with a beautiful view of the valley to the
 north  and the foothills to the south.

     With the principles of our Order, our Lodge and Members  have dedicated themselves to help the mentally and physically challenged children within the California-Hawaii Elks Assoc. Through CHEA (California-Hawaii Elks Association), we are able to offer Screening for pre-school children and offer  physical aid to children, that for some reason, fall through the  cracks. Through our Lodge functions, we offer 6 scholarship each year to graduating High School Students in Gilroy, San  Martin and Morgan Hill.

     In addition, our Lodge receives funding from the Elks
 National Foundation (ENF) so we can support programs like  The Elks National Hoop Shoot Program, The Elks National Soccer Shoot-out, Drug Awareness Programs and Scholarships  to graduating High School Students.

     We support the Elks National Program for Veterans Services. The Elks Motto, "As long as a veteran is in our Hospital, the
 Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks will never forget  them".

     We invite you to come and visit our Lodge. Tour our
 wonderful facility and take advantage of the beautiful  surrounding golf courses and our local wineries.

     We strongly encourage you to visit our National Web Site at  www.elks.org and the Web Site for the California-Hawaii Elks  Association
at www.chea-elks.org.

 Fraternally yours,

 James A. Snith
 Exalted Ruler
