Be an Odd Fellow!

People join our lodges for two reasons. One is for personal benefit; the other is for community benefit. A person might need individual fulfillment and benefit from one of the many programs available through the IOOF. Or they might be offering their time and commitment to join others to serve our obligations that build human character and promote a philosophy of life. Odd Fellows/Rebekahs supply both growth opportunities.

Odd Fellowship strictly forbids any interference with one’s religious beliefs or political opinions, either directly or indirectly. It requires:

  1. Acknowledgment of God and complete obedience to civil laws.
  2. Membership for both lodges is for men and/or women at least 16 years of age.
  3. You must have a belief in a supreme being as the creator and preserver of the universe.
  4. You must be loyal to the laws of your country.
  5. You must display fraternal characteristics of caring for others.
