Scattered Showers

The Dowagiac Elks Lodge brings so much more to the community than just a banquet hall or a golf course.  It is a place where neighbors come together, families share meals and children grow up. 

Throughout the country, Elks members invest in their communities through an assortment of programs.  The local lodge sponsors such activities as Hoop Shoot, Shop with a Cop, Junior Golf, Breakfast with Santa, ISD Pumpkin Patch and the Exceptional Citizen Prom.    

Dowagiac Elks also offers college scholarships and supports local sports teams to help children grow up healthy and drug-free.  Elks members also invest both time and financial contributions to help meet the needs of today’s Veterans, and to improve the quality of their lives. 

The Dowagiac Elks piloted the “Wooden Nickel” with their Friday Night dinners as one of their ways to give back.  Milk bottles with charity names are displayed on a table near the entrance.  Contributors can choose an organization to contribute to and drop their wooden nickel into the bottle.  For every wooden nickel collected, the Elks Lodge donates a dime to that organization.

The Dowagiac Elks also hosts many special events such as: Dowagiac High School Jazz Band Night, Mother’s Day Brunch, Flag Day
and multiple fund-raising golf outings.  For more information or to become a member of The Elks, call Dave Krueger, exhaulted ruler at 782-3889.
