FARMINGTON -- Maine Elks Association Youth Activities Director, Robert Bernier of Farmington announced today that the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks "Antlers" program will soon be underway in Lodges across the State of Maine. The Antler's program is an Elks youth activity program designed to provide youngsters between the ages of 12 and 20 with an opportunity to learn about the principles of Americanism, respect for parents and love of home, as well as to aid others through charitable and community service.

The program originated in the 1930's, but has been recently re-vitalized to encourage youngsters to join an organization that works to quicken the spirit of American Patriotism, that builds character, and teaches respect for the conviction of others on the matter of worship and religion.

Each Antler's Lodge will operate on its own, but will be supervised by its sponsoring Elks Lodge. The Antler's Lodge will elect its own officers, and members will work to develop their own programs and activities that support charities as well as community service projects.

To qualify for membership, youngsters must be between the ages of 12 and 21, a United States Citizen, be of good character, and believe in the existence of God. In addition, their "Antler's Lodge" must be sponsored by a current Elks Lodge. Currently, the Farmington Elks Lodge #2430 will be the first Lodge in Maine to offer this program.

For more information on the Antlers Program, or the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks, call Robert Bernier at 778-4597, or visit your local Elks Lodge. Information can also be obtained at
