Members have been busy today remodeling the downstairs of the lodge! New flooring going down today & paint was added a few weeks ago. Thank you to our amazing members for everything you do for our community, members and our continued survival.

Steve is now playing the music in Heaven. What a glorious sound it is today. We will miss you on Earth and until we meet again. To our absent member..

To Virginia lodges, state officers past and present and members

It is with sadness that I report the passing of Past State President R Steven Nelson today, Wednesday, January 20, 2021.
Steve battled the covid virus invasion with all of the might he could muster but ultimately succumbed to it.
We all can be assured that Steve's time upon this worldly celestial body was spent making a difference and positive impact on the people with whom he was associated.
Virginia Elks are greatly appreciative of his commitment to Elks Share Elks Care.
Arrangements are pending.
May all Virginia Elks and God be with his wife Emily and family in their time of sorrow.

John Owen, President
Virginia Elks Association

Hoop Shoot this year was a little different than past years, due to closings of area gyms, but as true Virginia Beach Elks, we were able to watch some free throws in the cold sunshine and social distance. We held the event at the home of Exalted Ruler Bonnie Shoemaker, PER and Paul Shoemaker, PSP, PDDGER. Levi Swenor, son of Karyn Swenor, PDDGER, and Eric Swenor, donated the use of his portable basketball hoop. Add some hot dogs and treats and a fun day was had for all the neighborhood children. Winners received trophy’s and a $25.00 Walmart gift card. Thanks to Cliff Bocchicchio for always doing a great job with the kids. MIGHTY 2268!!

Greetings brothers and sisters. I am a member of PA Lodge #69 in New Castle, PA. The wife and I will be in Virginia Beach and may stop in for a visit.
