The Duarte Elks Lodge serves the communities of Duarte, Monrovia, Irwindale, Azusa, Covina, Glendora, San Dimas, Laverne and Pomona. The Lodge provides a place for men and women alike to socialize and volunteer for worthy local, regional, and national causes.
The Elks is a great way to belong to an organization that gives back to the community. Where Americanism is alive and well; where the American flag stands beside the Holy Bible; where the American family acts as a unit and not as individuals; where the elderly are respected and cared for; where our military men and women are noted for being the best Americans we have, and are not forgotten; and where charity is a way of life. For any of us to be truly thankful for the blessings in life, it is for us to give to those less fortunate. That is what this organization is all about.
Our national organization, to which the Duarte lodge contributes, is involved in a variety of programs, such as scholarships, Veterans services, and drug awareness education. The Elks California and Hawaii Association (CHEA) is dedicated to helping children who are disabled. Generosity without fanfare and often even without the recipient's knowledge. We have always been there, quietly providing help and encouragement.
