(This article was first posted in June of 2017. If your state has since gotten a website for its Grand Lodge, PLEASE LET US KNOW. We plan on reposting this same article for a while to emphasize how important it is to have a web presence. C’mon GL’s, let’s get online! 😉 )
Occasionally, our blog will do a bit of investigative journalism.
On the international IOOF website there is a list of our United States jurisdictions. So, I decided to check each jurisdiction listed to see which Grand Lodges did not have a website or facebook page. I checked the IOOF international website and Google. I used this wording for my Google search: “Odd Fellows Grand Lodge of______ IOOF,” where the blank is the name of a state.
I only reviewed the first two pages for each Google search. Admittedly, my search may have missed some Grand Lodges. If so, please contact me so I can change your listing. Out of 51 jurisdictions (Grand Lodges) listed on the IOOF international website, 21 Grand Lodges do not have a website or facebook page that I can find.
If you DO have a website, be sure to list it on the IOOF international website!
