ODD FELLOWS SOCIETY
"The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is a fraternal organization that has been around since, at the earliest, the 1730s in England. In a time where people were dying of plague, they organized for the betterment of life. The Odd Fellows have performed acts of philanthropy like building houses and burying the dead to help stop the flow of disease. The IOOF website says “[They] 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.” (This description of the Odd Fellows purpose and history was taken from the Odyssey Online website.)
