Elks Honor Past Exalted Ruler Kathy Cush
Lodge #1543 of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks, located in Port Washington, recently honored Past Exalted Ruler Kathy Cush at a testimonial dinner dance. Over 100 Elks, community leaders, and public officials gathered at the lodge to honor Cush, dance to the music of Ralphie's Long Island Swing Band, and partake of a lavish buffet. Cush, the first female Exalted Ruler of this lodge, was one of three female Elks who joined the lodge in 1997, shortly after the organization was opened to female members. She served as Exalted Ruler from 2004-5, and previously functioned as Esquire, Secretary, and Leading Knight. She told The Port News, "It was exciting to be a pioneer." In answer to our inquiry, she said that everyone was very welcoming, and she felt no resistance or hostility because of her gender.
