Event description

Description

Celebrate 200 years of Odd Fellowship in America by taking a luxury bus tour, featuring Odd Fellows history, trivia, and prizes.

Did you know that the Independent Order of Odd Fellows was founded on April 26, 1819, at the Seven Stars Tavern in Baltimore, Maryland? From a pub it all began, and to the pubs we shall return!

On April 26, 2019, the exact bicentennial of the founding of the I.O.O.F., we will board a luxury coach to explore the old Odd Fellows halls of Portland, Oregon. The trip will begin at Peninsula Lodge and wind its way around town, stopping for a drink and a tour at several lodge halls that are now bars. Fun facts will be shared along the way, such as which Portland lodge was founded by police officers, what Odd Fellows fun group performed for Teddy Roosevelt, and which Noble Grand was arrested for "wandering the streets without a hat."

We'll finish the tour with a visit to the Grand Lodge of Oregon, then head back to Peninsula for a trivia contest to see how much everyone learned on the trip. Collector's edition prizes will be awarded to the winners, and we'll cap it all off by singing Happy Birthday to the Odd Fellows, and eating delicious gourmet cake.
