Benefits of Membership
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (the Elks, for short) is a combination of a social club and charitable organization open to men and women aged 21 and over who are American citizens that believe in God.
A beautiful lodge in the heart of New London's historic district
Our lodge features a full bar with special members prices, a dining lounge, two full commercial kitchens, a large banquet facility that can host nearly 200 individuals, two pool tables, and a shuffleboard table. Monthly social activities include special dinners and activities. Members are welcome to use the abudnant spaces, which include room for game nights, get-togethers with friends, and other activities.
Charity is a cornerstone of the Elks
The Elks are known for our community service, especially for children and veterans. We feature annual youth contests in free throw shooting and soccer skills, an annual Lids for Kids Safety event in which neighborhood children receive free bicycle helmets and learn about bike safety, an annual Trunk or Treat event at Halloween, and much more. New London is the proud home of Whaling Helping Whalers, a 501c3 organization that feeds the needy in New London.
