Greetings Sheiks and Samaritans,
We’re excited to invite you to attend the Annual Gathering of the Central Division from Friday, June 16-Saturday, June 17, 2023 in Tuscola, Illinois. Tuscola is known for its nearby Amish communities featuring unique shopping and dining experiences. We invite your spouses to travel with you and spend Saturday meandering through Amish Country. A volunteer has been confirmed to drive a carpool and be the trip guide. As a special treat, we have confirmed that several of our International Officers will be able to attend!
Please visit our Forms page to view and download the IOOF Scholarship forms.
All applications are due March 1st, 2023! Any received after the deadline WILL NOT be considered.
Since 1985, the Scholarship Committee has awarded $606,000.00 in Scholarships to deserving students throughout the state of Illinois. Which is an average of $17,823.53 per year and 20-30 scholarships per year.
Also, be sure to check out the scholarships available through the Sovereign Grand Lodge at https://odd-fellows.org/programs/education-foundation/
The Grand Lodge is looking into a group insurance program to insure lodge building around the state. We want you to understand this is a voluntary program, but preliminary results show possible savings as well as improved coverage. To be able to proceed we need some help from your lodge. Please fill out the online questionnaire below or print out the physical copy and return as soon as possible.
