Past Exalted Rulers

An "Exalted Ruler" governs each Elks Lodge in two capacities: 1. Oversee everyday operations of the lodge as a CEO would preside over a corporation 2. Insure Lodge activities inculcate Charity, Jusice, Brotherly Love and Fidelity. A Past Exalted Ruler is one who has successfully completed his duties for the Elk Year and has met other criteria. Elk Officers wear formal dress (tuxedos) during the Initiation Ritual and other ceremonials of the Order. Since 1874, the Exalted Ruler and officers of every Elks Lodge began wearing the new Elks regalia, composed of a purple velvet collar with a small, fawn colored roll and a jewel with an Elk's head with a gilt edge on the collar.
