The Arlington-Fairfax Elks Lodge brings so much more to our community than just a building. We have been supporting our community since 1960 and are a place where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up.​


We invest in our community through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, by undertaking projects that address unmet need, and by honoring the service and sacrifice of our veterans.


Our  Mission Statement is to inculcate the principles of Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity; to recognize a belief in God; to promote the welfare and enhance the happiness of its Members; to quicken the spirit of American patriotism; to cultivate good fellowship; to perpetuate itself as a fraternal organization, and to provide for its government, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America will serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that Elks Care and Elks Share.

"We all had our reasons for becoming Elks. Some selfish, some benevolent. It could have been the cheap drinks, or was it the service we provide to our various communities and the help we extend to those in need. Whatever those reasons were, today you are proud to be an ELK and you have every right to be proud. Not because of who have been members, but because of what these members have done over the years and continue to do today.."
