Port Huron Elks Lodge 343 Past Exalted Ruler Association will begin selling Lodge 343 125th Year Anniversary pins In August to members and guests. They are $5.00 each and can be purchased through the Lodge Office, the Social Quarters bar, or the Pro Shop. Profits from the pin sales will provide financial support towards the PER Scholarship fund, PER Holiday Baskets for the needy, as well as other PER Lodge 343 programs provided through the association.
Port Huron Elks Lodge 343 Charter was signed on Monday, April 20, 1896. On Tuesday, April 28, 1896, Lodge 343 held its first meeting and was organized and led by our very first Exalted Ruler Frank J. Hayes with 34 original charter members. Port Huron Lodge 343 has been led by over 97 different Exalted Rulers, many of them serving at least two terms during the past 125 years of our existence.
These ER volunteers all became members of our PER Association after they completed their term. Club 343 committee generously donated the funds to cover the cost to purchase (500) lapel pins. Thank you so much for the generosity! Included in this article is a picture of the pin. We thank you for your support with your purchase.
