Greetings from Minnesota
The Land Of 10,000 Lakes

On behalf of our 25 lodges of the Minnesota Elks Association, I welcome you to our website.

The Minnesota Elks Association was organized in 1904-1905. Our current State Sponsor is Past Grand Exalted Ruler Dwayne (Sandy) Rumney of Willmar Lodge #952. Our Association is comprised of four districts, each having a District President:

Neil Johnson
State President
  • South District President Dick Ledebuhr (Judy) of Winona Lodge #327.
  • North District President Butch Blight (Diane) of Eveleth Lodge #1161.
  • Central District President Bill Meyer (Marilynn Fahlin) of Alexandria Lodge #1685.
  • Metro District President Patrick Wright (Darcy) of Hopkins Lodge #2221.
Our State Major Project is the Minnesota Elks Youth Camp. Our camp is a co-ed camp for deserving youth of Minnesota, ages nine through thirteen. The Elks of Minnesota have been sending children to this camp for over 50 years. The camp is located twelve miles north of Brainerd on the south shore of Pelican Lake. The camp setting includes about 270 acres of land on Pelican and Markee Lakes. Click on our Youth Camp tab to find out more.

I hope that you take some time navigating our site to learn more about the Elks Lodges in our State and the work that we are doing with our youth, our veterans, and our communities.

Fellow Elks, please visit us often and get to know us.
