On behalf of the Members of the West Central District, we want to welcome you to our Web Site. We hope that you will gain some knowledge in to what our District does and when our District was formed. In addition, we hope to show you the dedicated Members of our District that have served in the capacity as Officers of the Grand Lodge, Officers of the California-Hawaii Elks Association and as Exalted Rulers of their Lodges.
Currently, our District is made up of 10 Lodges. Our Lodges go from the Monterey Bay, to the fields of Salinas, to the orchards of Hollister, to the Garlic Capital of the World - Gilroy, to the Silicon Valley of San Jose, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara, and Palo Alto, then West to Santa Cruz (where some people say the sun never shines) and finally to the strawberry fields of Watsonville.
These are the Lodges that now make up the West Central District of the California-Hawaii Elks Association.
Salinas Lodge -- Number 614
Santa Cruz Lodge -- Number 824
Monterey Lodge -- Number 1285
Watsonville Lodge -- Number 1300
Hollister Lodge -- Number 1436
Palo Alto Lodge -- Number 1471
Gilroy Lodge -- Number 1567

We hope you will go to the other pages of our Web Site to see the History (from 1985) of our District and the individuals who have served it so well for more than 150-years! There are also links to Grand Lodge in Chicago and the California-Hawaii Elks Association in Fresno.
