Description:
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) is a fraternal and service organization founded in 1868, with 2100+ lodges in all 50 states and DC. There is also a BPOE of Canada, as well as the Improved Benevolent Protective Order of the Elks of the World (IBPOEW), found worldwide.
Expanded Description:
Since its founding on February 16, 1868, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) has been recognized by the noble creature that is the symbol of the Order. The elk is a peaceful animal, but will rise in defense of its own in the face of a threat. The majestic creature is fleet of foot and keen of perception. A most fitting representation, the stately elk is, for a distinctively American, intensely patriotic, family oriented organization subscribing to the cardinal principles of Elkdom, "Charity, Justice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity." The 15 Founders of the BPOE desired a readily identifiable creature of stature, indigenous to America. Eight members voted to adopt the elk, seven favored the buffalo. ( Above history taken from here.)

5 US Presidents have been Elks, as well as numerous well known military, political, entertainment and sports figures.

The following information was taken from I.B.P.O.E.W

The "IBPOE of W" was formed in 1899, initially as an African-American Lodge operating parallel to the BPOE. They were shunned by the BPOE, but finally accepted in 1918. The "IBPOE of W" also encompases the Daughters of the IBPOEW.

Instructions for Posting a Elks Lodges Waymark:
