The Three Links of Odd Fellowship Symbolize:

Friendship

is the attachment you develop with your family, neighbors and community. This is the backbone of Odd Fellowship.

Love

is the affection we develop during the workings of our Lodge. The bonds that develop with your Brothers and Sisters to create a strong health Odd Fellow Lodge.

Truth

is honesty in all your actions. This honesty reflects well on you and on all Odd Fellows.

What is an Odd Fellow?

In 17th Century England…life was tough, often lawless and desperate. Medicine was still crude and in a primitive stage. Life expectancy was about 45 to 50. There were lots of sickness, orphaned kids, widowed mothers, and many people could not afford to pay a decent burial for the dead.

Such altruistic and friendly society came to be known as “Odd Fellows” because it was odd to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and of pursuing projects for the benefit of all mankind. It was believed that they were “an odd bunch of fellows” who would behave in such a selfless and seemingly impractical fashion.

They would work together to help each other and the unfortunate families back on their feet, whether it was rebuilding a barn that had burned or putting in a new crop after a devastating season. Read more.
