SALISBURY, MD – March 28, 2018 – Gillis Gilkerson, one of the most stable and trusted construction management and general contracting firms on Delmarva, announced it has been hired to renovate the Salisbury Elks Lodge at 401 Church Hill Avenue in Salisbury, Maryland.
“What a great opportunity to help an organization that has given back so much to our local community,” said Dwight Miller, president, Gillis Gilkerson. “We are excited to work with the Elks to update and make the needed renovations that will allow them to utilize more space to attract new members and ultimately grow their charitable efforts.”
Renovations include transforming a former multi-purpose dining area into a newly designed dining area and bar with a dance floor. The project also includes renovating the existing entry vestibule.
“Gillis Gilkerson has been a pleasure to work with, especially with the amount of work they have completed in such a short time,” said Bob Hussey, Trustee at Elks Club. “They are very helpful and make sure to keep us up to date on the project with weekly progress meetings. The construction site is always top notch and kept very clean which makes it easy to fundraise by selling the project.”
Funding for the renovation project came from fundraising efforts by its members. Elks Lodge members also raise millions of dollars to support local programs and organizations such as little leagues, school groups, the Salvation Army, local veteran organizations and homeless shelters. The Salisbury Elks Lodge opened in 1949 and currently has more than 1,000 members.
According to project manager Colby Bounds, renovations for this phase of the project is scheduled for completion in May 2018.
