Message from the Missouri Elks Association

State President, John Gross

2016-2017 MEA State President

Welcome to the Missouri Elks Association website. For the members and guests who are familiar with this site we hope you will find it useful in keeping up to date with what is going on in our state, and in learning about some of the great things our Lodges and our State Association are accomplishing throughout the year. For all the folks new to the site or just passing through we hope to show you what we are able to accomplish and how we are furthering the cause and building the strength of "Elkdom." For anyone passing through our State we hope you will be able to stop in on one of our 74 Lodges and enjoy some Midwest hospitality.

Sarah and I, along with Dave, my Administrative Assistant, and his wife Melodie, are really looking forward to visiting all the Lodges in our Great State and we are excited about the friends we will make along the way. It gives me great pleasure to be chosen to represent our Association and I consider it an honor of the highest degree. If there is any way we can be of service to you please let us know.


John Gross
