Since 2012 Silver City Elks Lodge 413 has donated nearly $200,000.00 to local and national Charities
"The Order of Elks is distinctively American...and its Flag the symbol of the Crowning Virtue"
The 413 has always been known to be the friendliest and most hospitable Lodge around. When you first enter the doors you're welcomed as family.
This is truly a place
"Where everyone knows your name."
Since 1898, Silver City's Elks have been at the center of social and charitable opportunities in Grant County.
Join us today and do good while having fun!
A Fraternal Order that is the Premier Patriotic and Charitable Organization
Members of the 413 Proudly honor our Veterans.
May love and laughter light your days,
and warm your heart and home.
May good and faithful friends be yours,
wherever you may roam.
May peace and plenty bless your world
with joy that long endures.
May all life’s passing seasons
bring the best to you and yours!

Silver City Elks members each year for the last 5 hosts an annual Christmas Project. Each year 50 to 60 students grades K-5th are chosen with the assistance of Elementary schools and are invited to a breakfast with Santa. With the assistance of Elk National Foundation Community Investment Grants each of these children are presented with $100+ worth of gifts purchased by Lodge members. This is always a great time and the smiles of the children make all the effort that goes into it worthwhile.
Each year Lodge Members

The mission of the ENF is to help Elks build stronger communities. We fulfill this pledge by investing in communities where Elks live and work. We provide tomorrow's leaders, our youth, with lifelong skills; honor the Elks' pledge to never forget our veterans; help the state Elks associations accomplish their charitable objectives; and fund projects that improve the quality of life in local Elks communities.
Since inception, the ENF has contributed more than $429.6 million toward Elks charitable projects nationwide. These funds enable programs that support youth, honor veterans, and meet needs in areas where Elks live and work. Our programs continue to grow each year, allowing Elks to do even more to build stronger communities
You can be a part by donating through our lodge #413 or online, even if you are not an Elk member.
The Symbolism behind our Lodge Pin
The pin has an image of the Kneeling Nun and the former Hurley Stacks images iconic of our area. The Kneeling Nun should remind us of humility and charity. The smoke stacks should remind us of while things always change, our commitment to community and heritage must always remain. It also carries the emblem of an American Flag in the shape of a Bald Eagle denoting our patriotism and commitment to Veterans. It also carries the New Mexico Zia symbol denoting the four points of the compass (north, south, east and west); the four seasons of the year (spring, summer, autumn and winter); the four periods of each day (morning, noon, evening and night); the four seasons of life (childhood, youth, middle years and old age); and the four sacred obligations one must develop (a strong body, a clear mind, a pure spirit, and a devotion to the welfare of others). The Zia symbol also indicates our dedication to our State Association and all things New Mexican.
