On March 30, it held the last meeting of the 2018-19 year. The meeting finished with an initiation ritual, initiating two new members, Barb Crane and Renee Borton and re-instating Joe Miller.

The Lodge is committed to helping the veteran and youth of the community by volunteering with Iowa Veterans Home activities such as Flag Day, annual Elk Fish Fry, annual Elks Pork Roast and the IVH Spring Carnival and the National Dictionary Project and Red Ribbon Week for youth.
