Elks

August 19, 2006

The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks (BPOE) is a fraternal charitable and service organization with over one million members in the United States. Sometimes you will find community cemetery plots with many burials of Elks members. The headstones will often be decorated with elaborate BPOE symbols such as this one from Denver’s Fairmount Cemetery.
