Do you know about the Junior Elks Program known as the “Antlers”?
This program was started in the late 1930’s and it had a good run for years. Then it was ended in the 1960’s due to lack of interest. This program has been restarted by a few Lodges around the country, including ours.
Our Youth Activities Chairman, Matt Rodriguez would like to see our Antler program grow and flourish. With the size of the Membership in our Lodge, our Antler program should be the largest and most talked about in all Elkdom, just like our Lodge. This program is open to any individual who has passed their twelfth and not yet reached their twenty-first birthday, who is a U.S. citizen, of good character and who believes in the existence of God. Parents do not have to be an Elk Member, but we hope this will encourage them to join. So, let’s help grow our program. Contact the Lodge, any Lodge officer, or an Antler for an application to join. Their next meeting I Monday November 18th at 645pm in the Antler Room (next to the Storage Room). #santamariaelkslodge #antlers
