Welcome from the
2018-2019 LEA State President

2018-2019 LEA State President Beulah Rodrigue

Welcome to the Louisiana State Elks Association’s website. I have the honor of serving as the first woman president of the Louisiana State Elks Association for the year 2018-2019. As the first woman to be elected by the general membership as president of the Louisiana State Elks Association, I hope to inspire more women to become active members of the order.

You will discover that our state’s Elk membership is small, but our participation in Elks programs exceeds that of many of our much larger counterparts. Our states two major projects are scholarship and veterans; however, you will see that we are involved in so much more.

I am most proud of the work we do for our veterans. Our New Orleans VA Hospital is probably the newest and finest VA hospital in the country. The fact that Louisiana has great VA hospitals, VA retirement homes, and several community-based VA clinics show that our Louisiana Elks members contribute to our state’s major project.

If you happen to visit our Bayou State, contact any of our 8 lodges. They are ready to help you experience true Southern and Cajun hospitality and cuisine.

Thank you for visiting our website.
