Anderson Elks Lodge closes; liquidation sale March 22

Membership in its heyday nearly 2,000

(Continued)

ANDERSON, Ind. —

His job as Elks Indiana president is to travel to the various lodges, listen to what their concerns are and try to increase membership if he can.

Dunn said he will miss the camaraderie the most now that the lodge is closed for good. He said he met some of his best friends at the Anderson lodge and on trips to other lodges around the state.

“You just meet some really good people,” he said.

The Anderson lodge, which officially dates back to 1892, moved into the location on Broadway in 1962. Ten years after the move, growth in membership saw them add a patio and second floor to the existing building.

Dunn said it is too bad the lodge is closing because of all the things the lodge did for the community. But he thinks because of membership and debt, closing was ultimately the right thing to do. The rest of the order agreed by unanimously voting to fold earlier this month.
