We install plaques and monuments to commemorate moments in Nevada history, usually related to mining or peculiar people and events.
The Chapter is completely funded by the proceeds from our various field trips and bacchanaliae for members.

WHAT WE DO
The Ancient and Honorable Order of ECV
First, what does E Clampus Vitus mean? Well, that is the greatest mystery of all, because none of us know what it means!
Second, what is the purpose of the society? There is a description of the society that all of you have heard. It is claimed ECV is a historical drinking society; others claim it to be a drinking historical society. The debate continues; it has never been solved.
Third, the objectives of ECV are well known: Members swear to take care of the widows and orphans — especially the widows.
All the members of E Clampus Vitus are Officers of Equal Indignity, but somehow these fools managed to get themselves demoted all the way to some perceived level of authority or responsibility.
Only time and trials will disabuse them of such folly.
