Florida State Elks Association

Florida State Elks Association Announces

Florida Elks Helping Hands

Florida Elks are leading the way in transforming Elks Lodges into training grounds for leaders and the place the community goes to find volunteers. Volunteer opportunities abound and with luck, our membership rolls will soon begin growing once again!

Not to be left behind in the quest to engage volunteers, the Florida State Elks Association recently announced a new program entitled Florida Elks Helping Hands!

Florida Elks Helping Hands is a volunteering program promoting ‘Elks Making a Difference’ in our association and major projects. COO/State Secretary Carl Seibert commented, “This is our contribution toward growing a volunteer movement.”

Florida Elks Helping Hands seeks Florida Elks who wish to contribute their time and talents to the state association and our major projects by volunteering at our state office in Umatilla to assist our staff with special projects and other activities operated by the state association.

Select volunteers will spend from one to three days at a time, (mostly Tuesday through Thursday) volunteering. Our helping hands will be provided with lodging at our youth camp while participating and will be afforded meals when available. The volunteer opportunities will develop over time but to get things started, we will be looking for volunteers to assist us with documenting, digitalizing, inventorying and otherwise cataloging the contents of our Florida Elks Museum.

This work will require attention to detail, some stooping and bending, and a bit of walking. We will also be working to digitalize many volumes of our convention proceedings and other historical publications dating back to our founding in 1904, and we will be working to develop a brick-finder directory to aid our members in locating their personalized bricks when visiting our Youth Camp Walkway.

Seibert commented, “These projects have been on my to-do list for 15 years now and I believe would still be there in the next 15 without this type of effort.” He added, “Come work side-by-side with the staff of the state association knowing that the hands you will be volunteering will be much appreciated and that your work will stand to serve our members for many years to come!”

Interested individuals should e-mail Carl Seibert at and provide a brief statement of your expectations and qualifications. His staff will then seek to match you with an activity and time that would best suit your needs!

Leading by example – that is our way and one we hope all our lodges would subscribe to!
