Open house for Seaside Elks

In celebration of the 150th Birthday of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, Seaside Lodge will host an Open House on Saturday, Feb. 10.  All community members and families are invited to visit our lodge, take a tour, watch the Cub Scout Pinewood Derby, enjoy a snack, play a game and meet Elks members. The lodge and lounge will open at 11:30 a.m. Snacks will be offered. Karaoke begins at 6 p.m. A crab feed will be offered at 6 p.m. for $25.  Tickets must be paid in advance. 

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks was the idea of a theatrical company located in New York in 1868 and evolved into a fraternal organization dedicated to the service of others. Seaside Lodge particularly cares about our local community needs, including students, educators, the needy and veterans. During the 2017 year, Seaside members and helpers volunteered over 5,000 hours, drove more than 11,000 miles and donated $9,000 to assist with local projects. The lodge used Elks National Foundation grants of $1,500 to help the county’s local Head Start Center and $3,000 to help feed the hungry at Thanksgiving. The lodge motto is “Elks Care — Elks Share.”
