Hendersonville Elks Lodge #1616




The Hendersonville Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (B.P.O.E.) Lodge #1616 is a fraternal, nonprofit organization, dependent on its members and contributions for support. It is a subordinate lodge under the Grand Lodge B.P.O.E. (whose headquarters are in Chicago, Illinois).

Pride in the B.P.O.E. emanates from the fact that Elks have recognized the principles of charity, justice, brotherly love, and fidelity for more than 150 years.

Time is a precious commodity that we as Elks can and do share with the community. Elks have always been leaders in helping their fellow man. As a whole entity, we have logged in more volunteer hours than any other fraternal organization.

Our commitment and goal is clear - we take pride in the fact that Elks are "volunteers."
