Have you heard the jokes around Freemasonry about “the goat”? Have you heard of the Odd Fellows (IOOF)? Well, in this episode of Historical Light our resident historians tackle both topics head-on with a special guest, Ainslie Heilich.

We get to go on a special private tour of an Odd Fellows lodge and tackle the issue of the goat head-on in the process. You will not want to miss this episode!

Christopher McHale Interview -by Toby Hanson PGM

I went from not being a member of the Odd Fellows to then, as I’ve said—it’s kind of overtaken my life. It literally has become a huge chunk of my life and I’ve had a few people over the past two years ask me if they joined Odd Fellowship what would they get out of it. You can literally get out of it whatever you want. You could just show up to a meeting a month and not participate, you can make life long friends, you can travel the world and meet brothers and sisters all over the place.

New Symbol Shirt Designs by Ainslie Heilich

I have been working on some minimalism/geometric monoline designs to represent the Degrees of Odd Fellowship.  It was tough to figure out what symbols to include or exclude, but I am pleased with the overall inclusion.  

These designs are available in the Heart in Hand Store, and are able to be placed on tons of unique products if tshirts aren’t your thing.   As always, all proceeds benefit my home Lodge.
