What We Do
SOCIAL ACTIVITES and HELPING THE COMMUNITY. The Odd Fellows has two equal purposes: we have created a place where you can be a part of a good group of friends and have a lot of fun; and with these friends help our community through our various charity projects.
SOCIAL ACTIVITIES. There are lots of opportunities for members to socialize. We have dinner in our banquet room prior to each of our two regular lodge meetings per month, and head back upstairs after each meeting for drinks, billiards, and socializing. We host a huge St Patrick’s fundraising party each spring, a BBQ on the sidewalk in front of our hall each summer, a blast of a Halloween party in the fall, a Christmas party at the end of the year, and other events our members organize.
HELPING THE COMMUNITY. Check out our Benevolence page to get an idea of the work we do. We donate approximately $25,000 each year to various community projects that are voted on in the spring and fall by our members. Additionally we sponsor some more signature projects including an annual $20,000 donation to the East Side Culture Crawl and we host a cold weather warming shelter in our building each winter in partnership with the City of Vancouver.
