Landon’s Tire was started in 1966 by Walter Landon in a one-bay garage in Chaplin, Connecticut. This one-bay garage soon became too small to operate, so in 1967 Mr. Landon relocated the business to 255 Main St. in Willimantic, CT. Throughout years of providing great personalized tire service, the business continued to grow at that location, which also became too small to handle the increasing number of satisfied and valued customers. In 1977 the business was moved again to 611 Windham Road, in Willimantic, CT.

A Message from Our Director, Father John Hanley, O.M.I.
The Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks of the United States of America is one of the oldest and largest fraternal organizations in the country. Since its inception in 1868, the Order of Elks has grown to include nearly 1.2 million men and women in almost 2,200 communities.
The B.P.O. Elks is committed to the ideals of charity and patriotism. To that end, Elks have now disbursed over the Order’s 142 years more than $2.69 billion in cash, goods, and services to the nation’s youth, its veterans, the disadvantaged and handicapped, and in support of patriotic and civic programs. In the 1998-99 fiscal year alone, the B.P.O. Elks expended in such fashion over $160 million, and the Order ranks as one of the largest private providers of college scholarships in the nation.
The Elks have created a quiet network of good deeds that has profoundly changed millions of lives for the better, yet there is little public awareness of the impact of their vital work. Why is this so? Quite simply, the Elks have rarely sought recognition, neither have they gone to the general public with fund-raising efforts nor received monies from any level of government. Indeed, the flow of money and goods moves in the opposite direction: the Elks donated to the government the first veterans hospital; contribute regularly to schools and police and fire departments; and assist the young and the needy throughout this great nation.
How could this powerful force have come into being? And where does all this charitable giving come from? From the generous hearts of Elks members whose willingness to share, whose prudent long-term planning, and whose time devoted to serve–for free and with enthusiasm–infuses the Order with an exuberant and enduring expression of the true volunteer spirit.
Of note is that the elected leadership of the B.P.O. Elks–from the Exalted Rulers of the local Lodges to the national president, known as the Grand Exalted Ruler, and other decision-makers at the various levels–serve without salaries.
The organization of the Elks is democratic representation, with overall statute
