MA Elks Veterans Motorcycle Run

  • Franklin Elks Lodge #2136 1077 Pond Street Franklin, MA, 02038 United States (map)

Across our Commonwealth and country, in hundreds of veteran’s homes and hospitals, tens of thousands of war veterans would live shut away lives, forgotten by their country and countrymen, were it not for such groups as the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. The Massachusetts Elks have never forgotten them and never will. 

Transitioning from military life back to civilian life is a challenge that all veterans face. Unfortunately, few are provided the adequate tools and resources to meet this challenge. This results in an alarmingly high number of cases of depression, substance abuse, and suicide and we are here to help them because they helped us by keeping us free. WWII veterans are dying at the rate of approximately 492 a day, according to US Veterans Administration figures. Korea, Vietnam, Grenada, Afghanistan, Iraq, and all veterans deserve the best assistance available. The Elks will never forget them.
