Odd Fellowship began in the Hawaiian islands on December 10, 1846. Excelsior Lodge #1 was the first Odd Fellows’ Lodge outside the Continental United States.
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows is a fraternal organization, operating under a lodge system (IRS Code 501(c)8). It exists primarily to provide for the benefit of its members, and our community service and charity activities allow our members to enjoy fellowship while actively doing community projects together.
Charitable work events are held at various times throughout the year.
