Exalted Ruler's Wreath Challenge

It's that time again, when I want to challenge all Murphysboro Elks to join me in donating at least $5 to the Honor Wreaths Across America program (Our donations will go to provide wreaths for Veteran Graves in the Cartervillle and Mounds Cemeteries). With your donation, you can sign a paper wreath, which will then be displayed in our Elk's Club Room (Mail-ins accepted too - send a check to P.O. Box 787, and we will put name on wreath for you.). Each of the actual wreaths, to be placed on graves, cost $15. Thank you in advance!

Cornhole Boards

Call it cornhole, call it bags, call it what you will. Our Lodge has Cornhole boards available for use by our members. You can use them outside, or use them in the back room (if it is free). Stop by the club room to check out the bags and enjoy some friendly play/competition.

Less Than 60 Days Until New Years Eve

In just some 60 Days, New Year's Eve, and 2019, will be upon us. If you are planning some sort of evening out, how about looking at joining in at the Lodge to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of "Grease?" Have fun dressing as your favorite character; as reflective of a favorite scene; or in general 50's apparel. Or, dress "Up" in a more traditional, New Year's fashion. More casual attire will always be acceptable. The choice is up to you — we want to make it flexible, and fun! Music will be by Davis DJ Sound and Lighting. A portion of the proceeds of the evening will go to the Crimson Express Murphysboro High School Marching Band. More details will follow as we get closer to the date — but if this event sounds interesting, mark your calendars and start planning on attending!
