How Do I Become An Odd Fellow

We are so glad you asked!
If you are a person over the age of 18 and possess a generous and loving heart, Odd Fellowship might be for you.
Just contact an Odd Fellow, we will get you an application and begin the (painless) process of initiating you into one of the world’s oldest and most respected benevolent fraternities.
Friendship Love and Truth is our motto, words which our members embody every day.

We host an open meeting every 2nd Thursday at 6pm at Smethport UMC if you’d like to come break bread and learn more about us.

Otherwise, we meet on the 1st, 3rd and 4th Thursday at 7pm in Jefferson, upstairs in the historic Bank of Ashe building located across the street from the Old Courthouse Museum.

We open our meetings at 7pm and at that time only members in good standing are allowed, but there are generally folks around visiting from about 6:15. Please feel free to drop by, have a cup of coffee, and get to know us!
