Elks Home to Admit Non-Members

Posted:

Bedford, VA - For the first time in more than 100 years, non-members can move into the Elks National Home in Bedford.

While thousands visit to see the Christmas lights each December, most of the rooms inside the building are empty.

The retirement home is licensed for 230 residents, but only has 81 right now.

The executive director says they've also taken a look at rates, to keep them affordable.

Until now, you had to be a member of the Elks to retire at the national home.
