45 Years of Community Service Down through the years with the Elks
Charity Thru the Years

Little did the handful of charter members realize that the lodge which they organized in 1895 would play such an important role in the welfare and charitable work of our community. Three of the original charter members, Ed Zeidler, Fred Hacker, and G. B. Samuels, still remain to appreciate the wonderful progress made by Muscatine lodge No. 304. Through the years our lodge has endeavored to do its share in making our community a better place to live. The 780 members representing a cross section of our citizenry Congratulate The Muscatine Journal on its 100th anniversary and sincerely hope that our lodge, together with the Muscatine Journal, can continue to be of service to our community through the years to come.
