Odd fellowship in the 21st century
About California Oddfellows In General
About us in particular:
We invite you to explore the Community that is Odd Fellowship.
Our lodge is a family of brothers and sisters working to build a world that we want to leave to our children’s children’s children.
A unique environment of caring and supportive folks.
We strive to become better people through Good Works.
Odd Fellowship is a way to support many local, national and international charities.
The moment you walk into our Odd Fellowship Hall you will be met with the warmth and camaraderie built on through our foundational beliefs of: Friendship, Love, and Truth. Symbolized with the 3 links.
Our Lodge is, among other things, a 501 C-8 non-profit charitable organization that uses much of the money it brings in to give help to worthy organizations, events and individuals.
If you are looking for opportunities to be of service to our community, while enjoying making new friends, there is a place for you in this organization.
We seek people of good character that believe we can make a difference in our world. People that enjoy honoring history, but willing to work to move us into the future as a viable organization. The work we do is worthwhile and important. Active members are essential for us to grow and be effective in our mission of doing good works for our community and world.
We invite you to join in that work by becoming a member of the Lodge. The independent Order of Odd Fellows is a fraternal organization founded upon the principles of Friendship, Love and Truth. These three principles, we believe are essential for the future of our country, our community, our society.
Friendship is the strongest bond of our association.
As a member you are bound to participate with your brothers and sisters to safeguard our members and families in times of adversity and aid those in distress.
Love is the link which requires neighborliness to our fellow human beings, which comes only after all hatred, envy and selfishness have been laid aside.
Truth is the standard by which we value people. Truth has the ability to make the pathway clear to move forward with integrity.
It is the foundation of our society.
United together we can make a greater impact on our community than we can as individuals. We hope you will consider joining us in our effort to make a better community and world.
