Tuesday, April 29, 2014 — The Susanville Elks Lodge took a historic step when it selected a woman to serve as its Exalted Ruler earlier this month.
“I am the first woman Exalted Ruler of our lodge here in Susanville in 93 years,” said Connie Stovall. “I’m very proud of that.”
Stovall said it’s only during the last 15 years or so that women have been allowed to join the lodge.
Like any good leader, Stovall has goals she would like to accomplish during her term as Exalted Ruler.
She said the lodge has partnered with the Lassen County Arts Council to obtain a $2,000 grant from the national foundation for an after-school art program for local students.
