"It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving."
- Mother Theresa
From scholarships to assisting veterans, the Elks believe strongly in charity. For us, charity is the highest virtue of every Elk creed. As such we strive to be more giving each year; more loving towards our communities and our country.
"Justice is the constant and perpetual will to allot to every man his due"
- Domitus Ulpian
We believe in justice not just for the wicked, but for the worthy as well. Good work and deeds should be as equally rewarded as punishment for bad. That is true justice. We must all strive to recognize the good, and drive out the bad.
"Because brothers don't let each other wander in the dark alone"
- Jolene Perry
Elks come together as brothers and sisters, a bond that lasts a lifetime. We come together in fellowship, in sympathy, and in kindness of thought, word and deed. We smile and laugh together, and cry when we lose a member of our family.
"True happiness...is not attained through self-gratification, but through fidelity to a worth purpose"
- Helen Keller
Fidelity is of supreme importance. Because without it you can't act towards each other with charity, justice and brotherly love. It is the principal that binds all the others together.
