53 years after the creation of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, a group of women, wives of Elks, from Omaha, Nebraska discussed forming a lodge similar to the Elks.  Although independent, this organization would be in harmony with the Elks and organized along similar lines.

The Benevolent, Patriotic Order of Does' Grand Lodge was chartered on February 12, 1921 by the state of Nebraska with authority to charter subordinate lodges, called Droves, anywhere in the United States.

Drove 166 has called the Arlington Elks Lodge home for many years. They work hand in hand with the lodge and it's events/benefits and also produce many of their own. To find out more information please use the link and/or contact info.
