    Escapees RV Club Elk BoF

    The SKP ELK BoF is a group of The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks members who are dedicated to the Rving lifestyle. Anyone who is a member of the BPOE and the Escapees RV Club is welcome to join.

    Escapees BOF (Birds of a Feather) groups are comprised of people who share a common interest. In order to belong to a BOF, one must be a member in good standing of the Escapees RV Club.

    The Purposes and Goals of the Escapees Elk BoF are:

    1. Gain new members for the Elks by helping Escapees, who are interested in becoming members of the Elks, make arrangements to find and join a Lodge.

    2. Work with the Elk's Grand Lodge to increase understanding about members who are interested in RVing. Gain support from Grand Lodge in promoting RV facilities at Lodges. Work with Grand Lodge to improve the procedures to bring in new members who are full-timers and do not have a location that they call home.

    3. Work with Grand Lodge to determine if there can be a way to hold special initiations for full-time RVers during rallies.

    4. Develop a program that will provide assistance for rebuilding a Lodge that becomes damaged in a natural disaster, such as a tornado or hurricane.

    5. The BoF has picked Escapees C.A.R.E. as our first charity. There will be others in the future.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Membership in the BoF is limited to those SKPs who are Elks in good standing with their Lodge. A SKP who is not a member of the Elks must first be initiated into an Elks Lodge before making application to join the BoF. Dues are $6 per year or any part of a year, (preferred $12 for 2 yrs).
