Br. Eugene Hartter, Prov. President, 2018-19
Thank you to all for the support throughout the years to becoming your Provincial President for the ensuing year. There will be some big shoes to fill following Brother Kalvin. He has represented our organization well.
Meeting new members and revisiting those I have met in the past will be rewarding as I travel to the Lodges and events throughout the province.
A huge thank you to the Kindersley Elks Lodge for hosting the 2018 Provincial Conference. It was organized to perfection and enjoyed by all that attended.
My theme for this year is ‘The Past, The Present, The Future‘. We often reflect on the past projects, fellowship and friendships that we have acquired throughout the years. Let’s bring some of these ideas into the present in order to have a good future for Elkdom.
There continues to be new ideas flowing in order to raise funds for our Provincial projects (SPARC) and our National Charity (Elks and Royal Purple Fund for Children). Let’s keep the projects alive and plentiful and make some new friends along the way. It is important that we support our Provincial Association (YES, ticket sales) in order to help the Children. The Children are the main reason we do what we do.
Thank you to the Executive for taking your positions and I look forward to working with you all during the year. Any and all suggestions are always welcome. New members are also always welcome. Remember; they won’t join if you do not ask.
If your Lodge is planning a special event, please contact me and I would gladly do my very best to attend.

Who We Are
The Saskatchewan Elks Association was granted a Charter in 1929 by our Grand Lodge, the Elks of Canada. Dedicated members kept the Association going through the Great Depression, a difficult task. In 1929 there were 32 Lodges in the province; now there are 57. The Association supports and guides individual Lodges through our Provincial Office in Saskatoon, District Representative visits, and Official Visits of the Provincial President. The Annual Conference, Sports Tournaments and the Walkathon are held in various locations around the province; all Lodges can bid to host these events.
The Saskatchewan Elks Foundation Corporation is a registered charity established in 1991. Linking Saskatchewan Elks and Royal Purple Elks Lodges across the province, the Foundation promotes and supports the needs of the individual and the community at large through a variety of programs and services. For further information phone 306-665-1333.
- Charity Appeal - The Saskatchewan Charity Appeal Raffle is one of the many fundraisers that the Saskatchewan Elks Foundation holds each year by selling raffle tickets.
- Sask Pediatric Auditory Rehab Center - SPARC is an early detection, assessment, and (re)habilitation program for hearing impaired children in the Province. SPARC, the Childrens Hearing Centre, is located at the Royal University Hospital in Saskatoon.
- Senior Citizens Homes - The Provincial Elks Association of Saskatchewan has long been associated with a project called "Saskatchewan Elks Seniors Homes". The goal is to provide appropriate living quarters and accomodations for Saskatchewan Seniors. We currently have 135 Homes in eight communities across the province: Davidson, Esterhazy, Hanley, Moose Jaw, Moosomin, Nipawin, Price Albert and Rosetown.
