The Scottsdale Elks Lodge recently elected its youngest female exalted ruler in lodge history, Anna Mineer.
Elected as the 2021-2022 exalted ruler for the Scottsdale Elks Lodge #2148, she is president of High Impact Promotions & Events, according to a press release, noting there are more than 600 members.
In the lodge's over 60-year history, Ms. Mineer is the youngest woman elected to the position in the West District consisting of 11 lodges, the release said, adding until 1995, the Elks had traditionally been an all-male fraternal order.
“I am honored to serve this amazing organization and continue to raise funds to support our local charities. Our members are unbelievably generous and after the trials of 2020, I know we are all ready to get back out into the community. Our charitable efforts focus on veterans and children in need; however, Elks are here to assist the entire community,” said Ms. Mineer in a prepared statement.
“As a lodge we have some amazing charity events coming up.”
The fraternal organization has a mission of caring and sharing in the community, added the release.
