The Greater Spokane Elks Lodge is proud to be hosting the WSEA Spring Quarterly meeting in April 2019. We are very excited to welcome you to our new property, and we hope we can show you some of what makes Spokane such a special place to visit.

The General meetings will be held at our new lodge event center located at:
9320 East Mission Avenue
Spokane Valley, WA 99206

We have been working closely with the Mirabeau Park Hotel & Convention Center to block out rooms for this event. The hotel is located at 1100 North Sullivan Road Spokane Valley, WA, and reservations can be made by calling 509-924-9000. You must let the hotel know that you are attending the “WSEA Spring Quarterly Event” to get the special room rate of $69.00 plus tax. This rate includes breakfast at the hotel and amenities, including a heated outdoor pool that is open year round, hot tubs, an exercise room, and live music Friday and Saturday evenings. Hotel reservations must be made by 3/30/19.

The lodge will have coffee and a continental breakfast available each morning of the quarterly. Friday dinner will start at 7 p.m. at the Mirabeau Hotel for $35 (this includes tax & gratuity). Dinner will be a Steak and Salmon combo plate served with Yukon Gold Mashed Potatoes, fresh vegetables, house salad, and a chocolate mousse for dessert. RSVPs for Friday dinner are required, and we will need notice no later than Friday, April 12th. Saturday lunch will be a Potato Bar offered at the lodge for $9. A Lasagna dinner will also be available at the lodge on Saturday evening for $12.

Spouses looking for something to do—we have many fun things in the area. Arbor Crest Winery (4705 N Fruit Hill Rd) and Latah Creek Winery (13030 E Indiana Ave) are both very close to the hotel. There are several casinos in Airway Heights, a quick 20-minute drive from the lodge. Riverfront Park, located in Downtown Spokane, has many wonderful attractions and shops. If you are feeling adventurous, you can take a gondola ride over the Spokane Falls to get to see some absolutely stunning sights. If anyone is planning on bringing their children (or grandchildren), please let us know so we can make sure there are activities planned for them as well.

We look forward to your visit,
