This is one instance where you don’t want to be the ODD one out!

The IOOF Special Event License Plates order deadline has been extended to THIS SATURDAY, APRIL 20th!

We have sold out of the automobile license plates.

We still have about 20 motorcycle plates that we can sell to any lodge or member.

These will not be available for your bike but rather for decoration in your lodge to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Odd Fellows.

No need for registration and you will receive your plate after the plate has expired.

Order these plates from Charlene by this Saturday with your desired number ( Lodge number) Cost is still $35.00.

Out of State orders are welcome and postage is extra.
