Greetings from Minnesota
The Land Of 10,000 Lakes
On behalf of our 24 lodges of the Minnesota Elks Association, I welcome you to our website.
The Minnesota Elks Association was organized in 1904-1905. Our current State Sponsor is Past Grand Exalted Ruler Paul (Stacey) Ryan of Willmar Lodge #952. Our Association is comprised of four districts, each having a District President:
Our State Major Project is the Minnesota Elks Youth Camp. Our camp is a co-ed camp for deserving youth of Minnesota, ages nine through thirteen. The Elks of Minnesota have been sending children to this camp for over 65 years. The camp is located twelve miles north of Brainerd on the south shore of Pelican Lake. The camp setting includes about 275 acres of land on Pelican and Markee Lakes. Click on our Youth Camp tab to find out more.
I hope that you take some time navigating our site to learn more about the Elks Lodges in our State and the work that we are doing with our youth, our veterans, and our communities.
Fellow Elks, please visit us often and get to know us.
