Peggy Berry

State President
I am honored to serve as the New Jersey State Elks Association’s President for the 2020-2021 Elk year. 

Peggy Berry has grown up with the Elks. Being a third generation Elk, second generation PER, married to PDD Ryland and family members who are Elks has only solidified her commitment and dedication to the Order which she considers her family. Whatever project or committee she has been involved with has been done with competence, efficiency and success always putting forth 100%. There was never a question as to who would chair a committee that needed help; Peggy was there to step up. Peggy is extremely honest and always looks to the betterment of the Elks. 

Peggy covers the definition of what is a NJ Elk is. She is employed by the Department of Defense for 20 years, recently for the Navy, working with deployed Sailors, Marines and their families. Her timeless dedication and support to our active duty military, veterans, families and Gold Star families through her job and Army of Hope Committee are commendable.

Peggy embraces the honor of being SCC Trustee Chair striving to assist the betterment of the life of special needs children. Her involvement and resolute passion drive her to grow the JSMP donations for our Special Kids.

Peggy’s dedication and successes are many leading her to be a PDD, State Chair of Hoop Shoot, Soccer, Mid Atlantic Soccer Director, JSMP Committee Chair and Member of GL Soccer Task Force. Her involvement and passion in these programs is legendary.
