Brad Smith

WEA President, PDDGER, PER

I joined the Elks in 2007 to assist them in helping out in our community. I have enjoyed many years of volunteering in my community as well as going through the chairs in my lodge. I hope to serve the W.E.A to the best of my abilities and wish everyone a great year of Elkdome!

Greg Flesvig

WEA 3rd 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 was asked to join in 1967 and now, after 50 years, I still actively support the programs for our children, our communities and our Veterans, of which I am one.

Served Since 1967

Darla Knuth


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.

Served Since 2003

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

The World of Elkdom has always been my life. My father was an Elk, and I was a DOE before becoming an Elk. When the Elks let women join, I was already involved with both organizations so I became an Elk. My first husband was and still is the Lodge Secretary, and my current husband is also active in the Elks. I feel there is not an organization that helps as many people as the BPO Elks. Elkdom will always be top priority in my heart.
