Another successful Law Day Event at Painesville Elks Lodge #549 today.   Thanks to all the law enforcement officials  who attended and to our officers who attended and assisted. And a personal thanks to our Clerk Nancy Lambo for her assistance in planning this event. Finally,  a  special Thank You to Painesville City Manager Monica Irelan who gave the keynote speech.  The theme of this year’s Law Day was the 14th Amendment.  Monica discussed this amendment as it relates to law enforcement and also its impact on local government.

Painesville and Willoughby Elks Lodges have been doing the work of our Lodge by spreading good things to those who need them. Most recently, we have delivered warm clothing to the Ashtabula Veterans’ Service Center, Lake County Veterans’ Service Center and the Mentor Municipal Court.  This is more good that has been done through the Elks National Foundation.









 More veteran cold weather clothing is delivered!  This time to the Geauga County Veterans Service Center in Chardon.  Braving the new snow were Scott Daniels, PER, Est. Lecturing Knight Tom Rowell (pictured far left and PDDGER Duke Miller (pictured far right).  Accepting the donation was Randy McVicker, CVSO, center.


What's Happening, Big Daddy?  Well, just look at some of the fun from our 2016 Big Daddy Golf Outing.  See more images on the Lodge Events page.



Here are some of your 549 brothers and sisters enjoying the newest highlight of our lodge.



Once again, BPOE 549 made a great parade even better as we carried our parade flag in the Fairport Mardi Gras parade!  Thanks to all who helped.  And thanks go out to the fine folks at the Fairport Slovenian Home for hosting us before and after the parade.

The joint Vet’s Clothing project between Painesville 549 and Willoughby-Cleveland 18 Elks Lodges is concluding with the delivery of bags of cold weather clothing to Deacon Al Jones of the St. John Baptist Church

in Painesville.  Painesville’s ER and Past District Deputy Duke Miller and Past Exalted Ruler Scott Daniels made the delivery.  Pictured are (l-r) Deacon Jones and ER Duke.

Other sites that were included in the distribution of clothing were the Lake County Veterans’ Service Commission, Wade Park VA, 152nd St. Veterans’ Resource Center, the Painesville citadel of the Salvation Army and the Painesville City Municipal Court. All these organizations will further distribute the clothing to disadvantaged veterans with whom they come in contact.


Painesville and Willoughby-Cleveland lodges, for the past two years, have applied for and combined their ENF Freedom Grants, totaling $4,000, in order to provide this service to our community and to our veterans. 

The Work Smart Clothing Factory in Wickliffe has been helpful in this effort by providing us with a generous discount on the clothing we have purchased from them.  Home Depot has also given us discounts on the tote bags we use for the individual clothing packages.  We even had some homemade knit

stocking caps and cracker packages donated to us this year!


Painesville’s ER Duke Miller PDDGER, Scott Daniels PER and Willoughby-Cleveland’s Jon Felice PDDGER and member Tom Jenks served on this committee again this year.  PER Tom Keaty from Painesville and Willoughby-Cleveland’s PER Mike Felice have also help in supporting roles.  The conclusion of this year’s effort brings the total packages of clothing delivered to those in need to approximately 300.  This a project that is sponsored by the Elks

National Foundation.  Please join ENF and give generously.  See any Elks officer for more details.





Pictured below is our full contingent of officers and trustees, along with visiting members from other lodges and most notably, State Ohio Elks Association President Lance Knight and his wife Susan. 





Below, ER Duke Miller and Est. Loyal Knight S. Robert Wright present the Madison Township Fire Department with equipment purchased with the $750 Ohio Elks Association Community Service Grant that we applied for and were awarded.  Sometimes its the small everyday equipment that makes their jobs easier!
