Bedford Elks Lodge 1707

The Bedford Elks Lodge 1707 was chartered in 1946, with 62 members signing to become a part of the national group of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elk. Originally the site of the post-Civil War Arandale Hotel, the Bedford Elks Country Club continues to leave its own mark on the history of the region. With its many community service projects, the Order has continued the Elks tradition of service, which includes a commitment to serve the people and communities through benevolent programs, demonstrating that ‘Elks Care and Elks Share’.

When you join the Lodge and Country Club, you become involved in our tradition of civic and community service, including:

  • Elks National Foundation and Home Service Program (full program description & details)
  • Annual Halloween Parade
  • Porch light Food Drive
  • Deer Hide Collection Effort
  • Fishing Rodeo
  • Annual Scholarship Award
  • Hoops Shoot
  • Outstanding 6th Grade Student Awards
  • Special Olympics and Young at Heart Games support
