  As the Sponsor of the Michigan Elks Association, I am extremely proud to say that Michigan Elks continue to be on the cutting edge and ready, willing and able to meet the challenges of the new Millennium. The Elks of Michigan and their families constantly amaze me as to their accomplishments in aiding our youths, veterans, handicapped children and those in our communities who are less fortunate and in need of assistance. As you browse through the various topics and articles on this site, you will get a very good picture of what Elkdom is all about and how Michigan demonstrates that

"Elks Care - Elks Share".

Michigan's Elks Lodges are deeply committed to the betterment of their communities and surrounding areas through charitable and patriotic service. Those of you who are reading and learning about ELKS for the first time through this Web Site, I encourage you to visit a local Lodge and get involved. To all Michigan Elks, I congratulate you and say that you can stand tall and proud of what you accomplish through your Lodge and your State Association. I congratulate the Internet Committee for providing an informative and highly professional medium for disseminating our message of Charity, Patriotism and Community Service to all..

Cordially and fraternally,

 James C. Varenhorst
