The Independent Order of Odd Fellows began in 18th Century England, it was odd to see people organized for the sole purpose of benevolent service to those in need. Hence the name Odd Fellows.
We currently are a worldwide fraternity in 26 countries. Our mantra is to visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan. We are often referred to as the three link fraternity as our emblem consists of three links which stand for Friendship, Love and Truth. The links symbolize the chain that binds us together and strengthens our communities by being joined together in good and worthy causes. Each lodge sets their own agenda according to their resources and the needs in their individual communities.
