The Elks Pledge
In each of the 172 Veterans Administration Medical Centers there is an Elk committee at work. Literally, thousands of Elks and their families give generously of their time, energy and resources so that the lives of our ill and aging veterans will be enhanced. Hundreds of thousands of hours and like numbers of dollars are devoted to programs that are designed to keep us true to our pledge:
"So long as there are veterans, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks
will never forget them."

The Lodge conducted our Annual Memorial Service on Sunday December 3, 2017. The Officers performed an exceptional and dignified service before an audience of Members, guests and loving families and friends of Departed Members in 2017.
Exalted Ruler Mike pointed out that even though this Ritual is required by Statute, the Middleboro Lodge makes a personal effort and takes pride in its performance every year. Following the Service the Memorial Wreath was place at our Rock of Memory on the Lodge lawn.
Departed Members who were remembered at the Service were Richard Cribben, L. Paul Forand, Joseph R. Lanouette LM, John L. Lucas LM, William C. McLeod LM PER, Joseph T. Manion, James C. Martin LM, Walter L. Moquin LM, James Pratt and Gerard L. Vaczy LM.
An Elk is never forgotten and never forsaken. We are proud to pay tribute to our Absent Members on the first Sunday of December every year.
On Saturday night December 2, 2017, the Lodge held a fundraiser for St. Vincent DePaul to raise money for their Children's Fund and for bikes for the kids. Our bartenders donated all their tips, we had 15 raffle prizes and 16 bikes all donated as well. The Lodge raised over $2000.
We look forward to making this an annual event.
