COVID-19 Availability Information
Updated August 5, 2020
In an effort to support the health of our community and to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the Davis Lodge of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows will be making adjustments to organizational activities.
All Odd Fellows Activities are Temporarily Suspended
The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge of California is an important resource for our members and the community. It is even more important that we take steps to ensure the safety of all.
During this COVID-19 crisis, we will be suspending Lodge activities and will be following protocols to help keep members, staff, and others healthy and safe . The Lodge Hall will be closed to the public, in-person meeting will be limited, events are temporarily suspended, and Lodge Hall operations will be scaled-back to a minimum.
These changes will certainly put a strain on our membership, our resources, and our community. We hope that we will be stronger as we exit this crisis.
Please email us with any questions or special requests.
The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge and the Davis Rebekah Lodge has long supported friendship, love, truth, faith, hope, charity, and universal justice. We abhor racism and violence, and we support the elevation of the character of all of mankind. We wish to state solidarity with those who oppose injustice and racism, and those who support free speech and peaceful expression of human rights, respect and dignity. We join in solidarity with all people who strive for a better America.

A few days ago a relatively new member of my Odd Fellows Lodge asked me a question that struck me as pretty straightforward. The member asked: "How do you think Lodges will do after this pandemic ends?" The question only encompassed eleven words so I was poised to...
The apocalypse is allegorically ushered in by the "Four Horsemen" representing Conquest, War, Famine and Plague. Without over-dramatizing the situation, one can certainly envision the "end of days" for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows if we have an intersection of...
