Charities & Programs
Thanks to 144 years of exemplary leadership at the Lodge, District, State and National levels, the Order of Elks has developed into one of the nation’s greatest organizations providing service to our nation’s youth, victims of disaster, veterans, children and adults with disabilities, and others in need in those communities our Lodges serve.
The Telluride Elks are proud of our involvement with the following charities and programs:
Huck Finn – Becky Thatcher Day is held the 1st Saturday of June, rain or shine at the Telluride Town Park. The morning begins with horse drawn wagons riding up and down main street, Riding with Roudy. Hot dogs and Hamburgers are provided free for kids throughout the event, and prize winning categories for both boys and girls include longest fish, most fish caught, first fish caught, most determined, best costumes Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher, and even 1st to kiss a fish. The goal is to send every child home feeling like a winner.
