If you would like to meet new friends, have fun and also help out those in need, then we have the fraternity for you! Men and women over the age of 16, may become a member of California Lodge No. 1. This lodge is part of the Independent Order of the Odd Fellows which started in the 18th Century in England. California Lodge No. 1 began in 1849 and is the largest lodge in the State of California today. We meet the first and third Tuesday of every month at 7:00 PM, with appetizers, meeting and dinner. The cost to join is only $75 (which includes first year’s dues of $45) and your dues will be paid up to 12/31/14. We meet at 1185 Vicente Street, San Francisco. On Tuesday, September 17, 2013 we are having an open meeting so you can visit us and find out if this would be something you would be interested in joining.
