In 1868, the Order of Elks was organized in New York which became Lodge No. 1. It quickly followed by Lodge No. 2 in Philadelphia and the number of lodges rapidly increased in various cities until May 2, 1902, BPOE Lodge No. 779 was instituted in Dixon by the Rockford Lodge. Elks Lodges bring so much more to their communities than just a building, golf course or pool. They are places where neighbors come together, families share meals, and children grow up. Elks invest in their communities through programs that help children grow up healthy and drug-free, meet the needs of today’s veterans, and improve the quality of life.
