The Orange Roamin´ Elks is a Lodge Camper Club that was established on July 6,1984. To be a member of the Orange Roamin´ Elks you must be a member of a Southern California Elks Lodge. We have one camp out a month on the 3rd weekend of the month and travel up to 100 miles. Anyone may attend one camp out as a non-member (to check us out) before joining the club. Our annual dues are $15.00, payable by March 1st of each year. Meetings are held on the first Friday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the lodge room, unless otherwise specified. All guests are Welcome!!

We have one fund raiser a year which is our Chili Cook-Off. This has always been a big event at the Lodge and we get a lot of entries. Last year we had approximately 110 people attend our Chili Cook-Off and out of this 110 people there were (8) hot entries and ten (10) mild entries. Last year we made a net profit of $1,010.73 and donated all the money to "House of Hope" (a home for abused women and children) and "Meals on Wheels".

If you like to camp and have camaraderie with other Elks and campers, come join us once a month for a fun time and adventure. If you are interested in joining us contact one of our officers. They are President Rodger Cornelison, Secretary Jay Broyles, Treasurer Carolyn Pierce and Wagon Master, Pam Jung. Their numbers are available at the Lodge.

Our lodge has one of the best Camper Clubs around! We are Charitable, fun-loving and hard workers... which makes for an Outstanding Chili Cook-off event. Jay Clapper and Marilyn Dinger teamed up to host another great day and our lodge never disappoints, as we had a huge turn-out. Many thanks to Lori Paulsen, Dano Nichols and Gloria De La Riva who judged the chili entries. So many great cooks and a hard decision. Drum roll please... the winners are~~~

2nd place Danny Salas
3rd place Allen Caddell

Hot: 1st place Louisa Aceves

November took us to the Tucalotta Springs Campground near Temecula. Our campers love this venue, as it is out in the wilderness and there are hiking trails and a quaint atmosphere. So many great memories are made here.

Happy Trails,
