Joplin, MO 501

District No. 4920

Lodge #501 Home

"Thank you" seems an inadequate phrase to express our feelings of gratitude for the donations, prayers, and best wishes of the Elks of this great Nation. Our Lodge is gone, however our Elk spirit and tradition is stronger than before May 22, 2011.

Our Memorial Service on June 25 was very moving, and the food provided by the Nevada Lodge was great. The following link will take you to a story done by the Joplin NBC affiliate. (The reporter, Jeremiah Cook, is a 501 member.) (You may need to copy the above address into your browser.) We thank all who traveled to attend the Memorial Service, and greatly appreciate the thoughts and prayers of those who could not physically be with us.

There is new information regarding the 2011 State Golf Tournament in the Extra Pages link at the left on this page. All hotels have reaffirmed their committment to the 2011 Elks State Golf Tournament, and there is an additional hotel, too.

The members of the Webb City Lodge are the exemplification of "Brotherly Love" and "Fidelity". They have opened their arms and the doors of their Lodge to us, and make us feel like "family". We owe them a debt of gratitude that can never be repaid.

We also greatly appreciate those at 4th Street Bowl who have attempted to fill the void left by the loss of our building. Our legendary "Speed Bar" and "Slow Bar" are both gone; however, the Lounge at 4th Street has become another place for us to commune, commiserate, plan, and remember.
