The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks has had a long and beneficial presence in Sedona for 50 years, and the Sedona Elks Lodge No. 2291 will hold its 50th Anniversary Gala with dinner and dancing on Saturday, Nov. 2, beginning at 4 p.m. with cocktails.Founding members of Sedona Elks Lodge No. 2291 place a sign on the property that would eventually be home to the current lodge. The ground breaking ceremony was held on Nov. 11, 1964. The group would begin meeting in the finished building the following year, where it continues to meet to this day.

Founded in 1868, the Elks organization was brought to Sedona in 1963, when a new committee was formed to institute a lodge for the growing community. According to Vito Pantaleo, past exalted ruler, the majority of the committee members were from the Jerome lodge.

It would not be until 1965 that the current building on Airport Road would be finished and the lodge members would begin meeting there.
