Friendship

You gain a new family in the members of your Lodge and a vast network of Brothers and Sisters worldwide. By joining Odd Fellows with your friends it helps to give a deeper purpose and meaning to your friendship.   We are a diverse organization and have members of all faiths, races, genders, occupations and abilities with over 600,000 members in over 10,000 Lodges in 26 countries.

Love

The historic command of the Odd Fellow is to “visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan.”

You get to take an active role in helping your community and the world be a better place. Local Lodges help out their communities in any way they choose and are unified together in State/National/Worldwide projects.

Truth

Be a part of the HISTORY and the MYSTERY. As an Odd Fellow you get to be a member of one of the world’s oldest and largest fraternal Orders AKA “Secret Societies”. Secret password, rituals, symbols, and more, all designed to “elevate and improve the character of mankind.”  By taking these lessons to heart you become a better person and in turn make help to make the world around you a better place.

Interested in joining us?  We would love to have you!
