About Us

The Independent Order Of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is a fraternal organization founded in England in the 1600s.  At that time people in society were class-conscious and few helped their neighbors.  When people got sick or their loved ones died, they were left to fend for themselves.  Many didn’t have enough money to bury their dead. The Odd Fellows stepped up and pooled their money and resources together to help people in need.  Since this attitude was converse to how society thought at the time, they considered themselves “odd” — thus the name. Currently, we have more than 3000 lodges and are one of the world’s oldest and largest fraternal orders.
