Hello and welcome to the Oklahoma State Website. My name is Joe Boykin and I am the State President for the fraternal year 2013-2014. Along with my wife Susan, we want to welcome everyone to our great State.
Here in Oklahoma the Elk's range from North to South to East to West. Ponca City to Ardmore, Tahlequah to Guyman and everywhere in between. We run up and down Historic Route 66 from Miami to Elk City. So as you can see you can find an Elk almost anywhere.
We pride ourselves on our charitable works. Some of the Major Projects of our State Association are Special Olympics, Camp for the Blind, Troop 999 Special Camporee, The Sky's the Limit Ranch, The Oklahoma Highway Patrol- Elk's Cadet Lawman Academy, and many more.
We support Scholarships, Drug Awareness Programs, Youth Awards, Hoop Shoot Programs, Soccer Shoot-outs, and many more programs through the Elk's National Foundation.
We never forget our Vet's, from helping in our States Veterans Hospitals with Bingo games, Horse races, to Donuts, to performing our Elk's Flag day Ceremonies, Easter Egg Hunts, Adopt a Vet programs, we help where we can.
So if you are an Elk travelling through Oklahoma, or possibly a person interested in learning more about the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elk's, please stop by one of our Lodges and say hello. I'll bet you get a great Welcome
Joe Boykin, President
Oklahoma Elk's Association
