The needs of our Order are three-fold, and therefore, so is membership.
First: To increase our membership, while at the same time obtaining active members rather than just social members.
Second: To recruit young, committed men and women.
Third: Getting our message for Friendship, Love and Truth out into the community.
This is a healthy OddFellow/Rebekah Lodge.
