Local Elk’s Lodge to reopen, regains charter

NORWICH – After four months of struggling to regain their revoked charter, Elk’s Lodge #1222 leaders have announced the successful appeal of an executive order which shut down the East Main Street fraternal organization in late February.



According to the original executive order issued by the Benevolent and Protective Order of the Elk’s Grand Lodge, the local chapter had failed to make the proper reports required by the laws of the order and had not complied with the auditing and accounting manual, a decision Norwich Elk’s Lodge Exalted Ruler Jeff Cola said was “based on past leadership and financial reports that weren’t filed” prior to his appointment in April of 2009.

Attorney Frank B. Revoir, who represented the local lodge throughout the appeal process, stated a new executive order, received on June 16, gave lodge officials permission to reopen on a probationary basis.
