Until we are able to re-open, we would like to remind our members that the Lodge grounds are closed to all social gatherings of more than 100 people, the six-foot social distancing remains in effect, and that face coverings continue to be required. As always, alcohol is prohibited on our grounds unless supplied by the Elks as allowed by our Club Liquor permit.
Critical Lodge business continues with the offices open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 10 am to 3 pm and by appointment.

Vets Picnic 2018

Saturday July 14 we went to Rocky Hill Vets Hospital with gifts, cook food and ran bingo for the vets. The funds came from a Beacon Grant and lodge members.

The Groton Elks Lodge used a Gratitude Grant to provide a mobility access mat to Eastern Point Beach in the City of Groton. This mat provides a beach access pathway for individuals of all abilities, pedestrians, wheelchair users, and strollers.

The Groton Lodge used an Anniversary Grant to donate to the Food Service Programs in the towns of Groton, Ledyard, and Stonington for the purpose of helping students with outstanding balances or inability to pay for meals. Our donations were very warmly received and appreciated.
