Portland Elks Wildfire Response

If you ever wonder why you are an Elk, remember what our lodges do for their communities in crisis.  In 1918-19 our lodge opened our doors to “Spanish flu” patients and returning WWI veterans for recuperation.  In 2020 the Miwaukie-Portland Oregon Lodge has opened their doors for the “refugees” from the catastrophic fires in their region.  To paraphrase the words of a former Elk member “we don’t just ask what our country can do for us, we do what we can for our country“.

Check our the newsfeed about the Portland Elks’ involvement in mitigating the tragedy to their community by clicking below.

Here are the results from the

Light a Candle fund raiser:

Dear Elks Family,

Thank you to everyone who participated in the 2020 Light A Candle Raffle.  With the unexpected COVID 19 pandemic we thought it best to try a raffle this year.  Even though there were only a hand full of winners…you did not hesitate to give hope to cancer patients in our community.

We were able to raise $3,625 this year for the Light A Candle program through your generous support along with our key sponsors (Thrivent Financial, GeoSep Services, Farm Gals, TKL Electric, Palouse Ridge Golf Course, UI Golf Course, Clarkston Golf & Country Club, Lewiston Golf & Country Club and Bryden Canyon Golf Course) and our Light A Candle Champions that donated $100 (CHS Primeland, Furniture Center, Happy Day Restaurants, Inland Cellular, Jon J. Kimberling Insurance, Pickard Orthodontics, Presnell Gage, Red Star and Umpqua Bank).

The five main prizes winners (total value $1,525) …and the lucky winners are:

CASEY LEACHMAN:  Palouse Ridge Golf Course (4 rounds 18 w/cart, $25 Red Star)

KAYLYNN SEE:  Bryden Canyon Golf (4 rounds 18 w/carts, $50 Dave’s Golf, $25 Red Star)

JOE COX:  Clarkston Golf & Country Club (4 rounds 18, no cart, golf swag, $25 Red Star)

BOBBI ROSS:  Lewison Golf & Country Club (4 rounds 18, no cart, $25 Red Star)

TRAVIS LAMBERT:  U of I Golf Course (4 rounds 18 w/cart, UI swag, $25 Red Star)

We also drew for gift cards; the See kids’ golf balls (they have so diligently collected our lost balls for us this year); along with a shirt from our major sponsor Thrivent Financial with the logo “live generously.”  Once again, the Elk members proved how big a heart they have for others.  It is a blessing to be part of such a caring community.  The lucky winners are:

$25 Bath & Body & t-shirt – Tom Soott, Carter Nelson, Will G

$25 Old Navy & t-shirt – Paul S., Jim Barrett

$25 TJ Max/Marshall & t-shirt – Mike Strom

$25 Starbuck & t-shirt – Heather McPherson

$25 Happy Day & t-shirt – Steve Kossman, Barb Heimgartner

$25 Spence – Bev Rhoades

Thanks & Blanks card set & t-shirt – Jo Lynd, Shelly Cannon

See Kid’s lost balls & t-shirt – Debbie Chamberlain, Kelly Gilder, Kim Monk, Larry Verdal, Jo Lynd, Ray Peterson,      Racicot, Mike Strom, Annette Smith, Jerry Curtis.

It has truly been a challenging year “at a distance.”  Next year we hope to bring back the tournament and raffle table.  We genuinely thank you for standing alongside people in our community struggling with cancer and for giving them hope on their journey!

All prizes will be left at the Elks, please swing by soon and collect your prize!

  • The deadline for applications is February 5, 2021 at 11:59 a.m. Central Time.
  • Read below for eligibility information and answers to Frequently Asked Questions.

Who is Eligible?

  1. For the 2021 contest, any child or grandchild (or step-child, step-grandchild, or legal ward) of a living Elk who joined the order on or before April 1, 2018, or a charter member of a Lodge that was instituted on or after April 1, 2018, is eligible to apply. The Elk must also be a paid-up member through March 31, 2021. Great-grandchildren are not eligible.

From the Exalted Ruler

Well, here we are moving into September and good weather for golfing.  The course is in excellent shape and a few more tourneys are scheduled.  Bar and dining traffic is winding down but Steak/Salmon Fridays should continue for the month.  We are blessed that staff has returned to work, tested and healthy.

Over twenty new members have joined our family the past several months and we have five more that are waiting for initiation on the 9th of September.  So exciting.  I look forward to working with them.  New member, Tracy Dorigo has stepped up to fill our Lecturing Knight position and we are very pleased to have her.  Unfortunately, we still have 23 members who have not paid their dues for this year.  If you are one, please contact Wayne.  We would hate to lose you.

Happy Fall.

From the Desk of the Secretary


As we go leave our summer months and go into fall, I think it is good to reflect back on the last few months.

We have been blessed to have our Lodge and the golf course.  Governor Little deemed golf courses a necessary business as he wanted the residents of Idaho to get out, get exercise and fresh air — and that we did.  We were also able to get a degree of normalcy during these troubled times.  We are all so blessed to live where we do!  We have had more membership applications,
new memberships, transfers in, and re-instatements than we have had in many years.  We still have 23 members who have not renewed for this year and I hope to cut that in half before the end of this Lodge year.

Financially, we are doing OK.  We have made it a policy that we are NOT open to the general public.  We will still rent the Lodge out for private functions, on a limited basis, but due to the Covid-19, we have only had one booking this year.  Bobbi is doing her part at keeping the bar/restaurant area at proper distancing and continues to disinfect on a egular basis.  Our members have been enjoying golf leagues, lunches and dinners and it is through our membership that we have been able to keep the boat afloat.  Thank you to all of you that have been so faithful.

In closing, hang in there.  I refuse to believe that there will be a “new normal”.  Humans are social creatures, determined to beat this virus —- AND WE WILL!  Take it from me —been there, done that!

Wayne Krauss,
Secretary, PER
