If you’ve driven by the Montrose Elks hall on Hillcrest recently you may have seen a few protesters. A convicted felon Whitmarsh Bailey received a letter from the Elks Club 1053 dated October 30th saying he was no longer welcome due to lying on an application regarding a 1986 conviction.

Bailey says he was a member of the Brighton, Colorado Elks lodge in the past. Local Elks ruler Paul Moore says they do not discriminate.
