Exciting News – A NEW LODGE!

For many years, Lodge No. 96 has been renting facilities.  These facilities severely restricted our ceremonies, activities, and the good work we could do for our community and the charities that the IOOF supports. So…

On Thursday, October 5, 2017, we invested in our future and our community!  We purchased a beautiful property in New Columbia and will be moving there soon.  It is a house and barn built in 1870.  This will allow us to establish a permanent Lodge to grow our membership.

It is a great location to hold events and raise funds for our community and those in need.  Come an join us on this exciting new chapter in our Lodge.  Serve your community and become a member!  Our membership is open to all, ages 16 and over.

We have a lot of work to do and our community and charities will benefit from you!  You will want to be a part of this excitement and activity!  We are looking forward to being a good neighbor in New Columbia!

More to come…

Members (L to R) Paul Koch (District Deputy), Scott Robinson, and Gary Hallock (Secretary), proudly display the keys to our new Lodge.
