ELKS RIDERS LODGE 2136
We are an association of the Franklin Elks Lodge with the purpose of increasing the popularity of our common interests; riding and enjoying our membership in the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks .
We are a riding association and NOT a motorcycle club.
The Franklin Elks Riders 2136 chapter was proudly patched-in on August 15, 2020. As Elks Riders, we seek to promote the interest of our organization and our members further, not only to fellow Elks, but the community as well.
We strive to become a successful association. Our success is generated by the hard work and time donated by our members.
To become a member of the Riders group you must first be a paid-up Elk member in good standing of our Lodge.
President: Rich Gately
Vice President: Paul (Hoofy) Fiorio
