Laura Laughlin

WEA 1st Vice President, PDDGER, PER

My husband Michael and I are truly blessed. When we were lucky enough to be able to come back to Wyoming we wanted a way to “play it forward”. We walked into our local Elks Lodge and felt we found the vehicle with which we would be able to do that. I became an Elk in 2011, gone through the local lodge chairs, served on state committees and served as District Deputy for 2 years. Joining the Elks has enhanced our lives and has made us better people. I hope tp continue to serve the Elks for many years to come.

Served Since 2011

Greg Flesvig

WEA 2nd Vice President, PER

When I was asked to be an elk, it was explained to me that they help children and veterans primarily, this statement alone ignited the fire in me and I took pride in being an Elk. Over the years as I’ve learned of the many programs, I feel that the Elks has a deep passion to help others in need like no other.

I became a WEA officer because I enjoy working with different people and learning more about each lodge. We as Elks do a great deal for our Veterans and help the less fortunate. We all have big hearts and are willing to give our time to help any way we can.

Pat Russell


I became a member when I was inquiring about trying to find a way to volunteer in my community. I was at the Elks lodge with my husband and started asking questions. I really wanted to do something for the youth in our community and found out that the Elks had a “Needy Youth Program.” Sounded like just what I was looking for. Now many years later, I have served on this committee at all levels and never tire of finding ways to support the youth of Wyoming through our program. It is this program that drives me to find other ways to meet the needs of our communities and ways to support the efforts to do so. It is a joy to be part of the Elks organization and I am so glad I was asked to join and look forward to many more years to be involved.

Served Since 2004
