ER’s Message

Summer is in full bloom

"People are making new friends and if we work together to build each other up, no one can tear us down."

The sun is shining and the Tiki bar is open in full swing!  I want to thank everyone who have been working very hard to keep our pool facility operating so our members and the community can enjoy the summer days ahead.

  We have been getting numerous calls for events under the pavilion, to host weddings, children’s special birthday parties, non-profit group’s end of the school year events.   This is because of everyone’s help in keeping the Lodge beautiful and an up-to-date facility.  It is being recognized by many people and organizations within our community.  There is excitement to host an event at our Lodge!

It does my heart good watching everyone enjoy themselves on a daily basis at our Lodge by using the pool facility, having a beverage or some food at the Tiki bar, or just enjoying our inside bar. People are making new friends and if we work together to build each other up, no one can tear us down.  We are one big family here at Salisbury Elks Lodge #817 and as our family continues to grow, it is my wish that everyone continues to work together like one big extended family.

Recently, we went to Solomon’s Island to represent Elks Lodge #817 at the State Convention, where everyone knew our Lodge name because of each and every one of our members.  We continue to show other Lodges what it means to be a proud member of Elks Lodge #817.  We made it through COVID-19 together and we will thrive in the remaining months and years ahead.  I challenge each and every one of you today to reflect on what it means to be an Elk.  We will continue to build each other up, respect each other’s opinions and values, and make good choices in not allowing anyone else to influence our decisions in building strong, valued relationships.

Bringing Unity Together
