Welcome to the Franklin Lodge of Elks, #2136 of The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks of the United States of America. The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks (BPOE) was founded on the cardinal principles of charity, justice, brotherly love and fidelity. Since its inception in the late 1800's, the BPOE has grown into one of the most respected organizations in the United States, and since July 1959, the Franklin Lodge and its members have been proud to represent this organization. We are just one of over 2,200 lodges throughout the U.S., with over 1.4 million members nationally.
We encourage you to visit the pages of this web site to learn how Franklin Lodge #2136 and The Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elks are helping to support patriotism, encourage giving within our communities, support and understanding of our service men and women, and how we hope to foster these qualities in our young people.
