We will go anywhere…We achieve this by working in our local Communities, States, Provinces, or nationally we understand that we can make a difference in the lives of people in our World. “Odd Fellowship means service…with a personal feeling of infinite hope, the joy of a good deed well done, and the memories, which sweeten the soul and elevate the character of humanity”. We seek to broaden the mind, elevate the character of humankind, and we will go anywhere to spread our message of Odd Fellowship. We are always seeking new adventures to promote our goals”. We invite people to join with us as we travel life’s paths on a series of “Elevated Adventures”. We have attached a Propeller to insure that we travel to all the different and unique places available for us to spread our word and achieve our mission.

Our float expresses the concept that we seek to broaden the mind, elevate the character of humankind and we will go anywhere to spread our message of Odd Fellowship. We invite people to join with us as we travel life’s paths on a series of “Elevated Adventures”. The purpose of the Organization is to provide educational opportunities and cultural understanding for the public. To encourage peace and goodwill to all people everywhere. It will help to make the world a better place by seeking to improve and elevate the character of humanity. Odd Fellowship is dedicated to broadening of the mind and the elevation of character without taking from the individual any of his/her rights or privileges or the duties each owes to his/her God or country. Odd Fellowship is the teaching and application of: Friendship, Love, and Truth; Faith, Hope, and Charity; and Universal Justice. These are the principles of the Order’s doctrine, the basis for thought and action that will create peace and harmony among all peoples. Odd Fellowship means social and international brotherhood and sisterhood. “Odd Fellowship means service…with a personal feeling of infinite hope, the joy of a good deed well done, and the memories, which sweeten the soul and elevate the character of humanity”. “As Odd Fellows, we should aim to improve and elevate every person to a higher, nobler plane; to extend sympathy and aid to those in need, making their burdens lighter, relieving the darkness of despair; to war against vice in every form, and to be a great moral power and influence for the good of humanity.” Today, Odd Fellows and Rebekahs continue to exist with nearly 10,000 lodges in approximately 28 countries consisting of men and women who have united together for mutual aid and conviviality, providing social and practical support for each other and their communities in every way possible. Even though we have come a long way, there are still more that needs to be done. Working together, we make a difference! We achieve this by working in our local Communities, States, Provinces, or nationally we understand that we can make a difference in the lives of people in our World. We are a friendly society that have come 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. It was believed that they were “an odd bunch of fellows” who would behave in such a selfless and seemingly impractical fashion.
