Interested in joining or just want more information? We'd love to meet you! Please feel welcome to attend any of our Zoom movie nights and Art Nights and/or attend a potluck after our Thursday night business meetings! Potlucks are in-person and usually start around 8:30 pm.  If you'd like to join us in-person, please drop a line ahead of time so that we know to expect you!  You can also contact us via email, Facebook, or Instagram - we are happy to answer questions or set up alternate meet-up times if Thursdays are difficult for you. 

Why be a member?  Lots of reasons!  Odd Fellowship can provide a lot of opportunities to learn and hone leadership skills, opportunities to volunteer in your community, and connections to Odd Fellows around the world! As we re-emerge from the seclusion of the past couple years, we find that having a welcoming community is more important than ever - community life and social connectedness is central to our health and well being, and Odd Fellowship is a great way to build and rebuild those bonds!


The process for joining is to find a sponsor, fill out an application (available on our home page0, have it read to the lodge at one of our meetings, be assigned an interview committee who will meet with you and get to know you. The committee reports back to the lodge at a subsequent meeting, then the lodge votes to initiate you. Initiations are held at various times of the year and various locations, which we will communicate with you as the opportunities arise. While you are waiting for the process to be complete, please join us at our open events!
