STATE ASSOCIATION

THE 2021-2022 NEW OFFICERS – CONGRATULATIONS TO THEM ALL!

STATE PRESIDENT

Denise Shurtleff (Craig)

Wareham/New Bedford #73

Denise was initiated into the New Bedford Elks Lodge #73 in the fraternal year of 1995-1996. Immediately, she got involved volunteering and helping anywhere she could. In 1999, she was elected as Exalted Ruler. After her term as ER she served as a trustee, chairman of the trustees, and treasurer of the lodge.
Denise enjoyed working on the lodge soccer program, which lead to the district chairmen position and ultimately, State Chairmen for many years. Over the years, she was on various state committees, including youth activities, Elks night at the Revolution, ENF fundraising, and many more. She’s been an active member of the South District PER Association, serving as treasurer for many years, and continues to do so.
In 2008, Denise was appointed Esquire to the District Deputy and in 2009 served as District Deputy of the south district. A position she was honored to obtain. In 2014, the members of New Bedford Lodge #73 recognized her hard work and dedication to Elkdom and voted her an Honorary Life Member.
She continues to serve as a District Director on our Major Project, Scholarship. In 2018, she became 2nd Vice President of the Mass Elks Association.
With the support of her husband Craig and her daughters Rachael and Jamie, now in 2021, she proudly serves our state association as President. Her goal, after this Covid year, is to rekindle the friendships in Elkdom that we so greatly missed in the past year.
