Did You Know...
that the Elks has a Mother's Day Ceremony?
As you may, or may not, know the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks perform a variety of ceremonies. Most of which are open to the public. Probably the only secret ceremony is the Initiation ceremony. Most people may be familiar with our ceremonies for Flag Day, Funeral Services, and Memorial Sunday. In addition to the above, we have ceremonies for Dedication of a New Lodge or Room, Mortgage Burning Ceremony, and Mother's Day Ceremony.
This writer does not know if our Lodge has ever done the Mother's Day Ceremony in the past or not. Most members, and even Officers, are probably unaware that we have such a ceremony. I have created a web page with the details of the ceremony. You can go to it by clicking on the link below. Perhaps if there is any interest, the Lodge Officers will perform the Mother's Day Ceremony sometime in the future.
