Ridgway Elks help the community

According to the Elks Club, the mission of each lodge across the country is to instill 'principles of charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity.'
Its start as a place of fellowship guided the mission into what it is today. Club members work to support and build up their community and surrounding areas through fundraisers, boosters and activities, for both fellow members and guests.
The Ridgway Elks Lodge also holds true to the principles of making the community a better place.
Last year, the lodge raised over $34,000 through volunteer efforts by members and recruited guests.
