    Welcome to the new home of the New Hampshire State Elks Association! We all have important values and ideas, things we care about and want to share. Sometimes we feel our ideas can even change the world, and we, the members of the Elks, want to let other people know what we are doing to make all our lives better. This site is dedicated to the officers and over 8000 members of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, here in the great state of New Hampshire. The Elks is a Fraternal Organization, started in 1868 with the sole purpose of helping those that need it. The order has grown to over a million members, nationwide and is distinctly and uniquely American. The members foster the GREAT HEART OF ELKDOM which is to help those with need, whatever that need may be. And in conjunction with that, the Elks have dedicated themselves to those that have built and protect this great country of ours.


"SO LONG AS THERE ARE VETERANS, THEY SHALL NEVER BE FORGOTTEN"

So please visit us often, and learn what the Elks are doing in your community and what you can do to join or help.
