The Clearwater Elks Lodge also known as Clearwater Elks #499 is a small group of the Elks of Canada.
The Clearwater Elks Lodge was started in 1965 with an enthusiastic membership of 45 members and 15 officers. Over the years we have built and maintained our Lodge and sponsored many programmes locally, provincially and nationally.
It is with great pride that we have helped many groups: the Clearwater Fire Department, Wells Gray Search & Rescue, Clearwater Minor Hockey Program, the Canadian Legion, Raft River School Breakfast Program, RCMP Bike Rodeo, Clearwater Secondary High School Bursary Program for graduates, Clearwater Food Bank, The Terry Fox Run, Elks & Royal Purple Fund for Children (our National Fund), the B C Elks Camp for Kids in Salmon Arm called Camp Canoe.
We also have our own Best Christmas Ever Fund. A local deserving family picked by the Raft River School will receive a nice donation of gift cards from local businesses, purchased by Clearwater Elks Lodge, making their Christmas the best ever.
We raise funds by Hall Rentals, Senior Workshops, and our Pancake Breakfast which is held near the Farmer’s Market each Saturday from beginning of May to end of October. Also rentals for bingo games, and Kathy’s Indoor Market who is open on Saturdays 9 AM to NOON from May to end of September.
For a small group the Clearwater Elks Lodge accomplishs quite a lot and we are very proud of our past endeavours.
The Clearwater Elks Lodge is always looking for new members that are needed, wanted and appreciated.
We are working very hard to keep our organization in Clearwater going. If interested, please contact Phyllis at 250-674-3535.
See you at the Breakfast. Have a nice day.
