Hello Ballard Odd Fellows & Friends,

Leading out, I want to acknowledge that reality is very tumultuous right now, and that I hope you are safe, whether you are participating in the demonstrations or only affected by them.

We're getting together online tonight at 7:00 PM PST, and I'd like to leave space to discuss the demonstrations, the murder of George Floyd and others, and their impact on us as an organization and as individuals.

The first Thursday is traditionally movie night, so we've also got Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing" cued up to watch.

Independent Order of Odd Fellows

These are the basic commands that guide our actions as Odd Fellows from day one. Historically, it literally meant cemeteries and orphanages. Today, we interpret these ancient commands into modern terms, which means Lodges are given the flexibility to focus on the projects that mean the most to them and their community!

There's going to be a fare amount of troubleshooting to get karaoke to work, but i'm thinking all we will need is the Zoom meeting and a way to simultaneously watch Youtube videos. And even if it doesn't work perfectly, it should still be a hoot.
I look forward to seeing you tonight!

On April 26th, each year we celebrate the founding of our Order in North America by Thomas Wildey. We are told of his great passion for spreading Odd Fellowship across the continent and his many decades of travel. Less, however, is known about his personal life. This year approaching our 201st Anniversary this quote seemed appropriate for today and is dedicated to all the medical workers, first responders, and essential workers. Each day they are putting themselves at risk taking care of us and keeping everything as close to normal as possible.

❤️✋️🔗

This quote was taken from the “History of Odd Fellowship: The First Decade by James Ridgely and contains probably the most detailed biography of our “Odd Father”. Read the full bio here: https://oddfellowsguide.com/2019/01/15/thomas-wildeys-life-and-love-of-odd-fellowship/

“It is said, when the yellow fever raged in Baltimore, Thomas Wildey was constant in his efforts to assist the sufferers. He gave medicines and money, and nursed and watched the victims when many fled from the contagion.”

In FL&T

This Lodge grew to about 40 members and even established a second Lodge in Kobe, Japan, just a few years after. Sadly, IOOF died out due to political instability in Japan and the wars between America and Japan that occurred in the 20th Century. #IOOF #OddFellow #AncientFraternity

I just sent the following to all our members, but it's important enough to reiterate here: This is Clinton Attaway, Noble Grand at the Ballard-Alki Odd Fellows Lodge. I wanted to communicate with you the actions we're taking in response to the COVID-19/Coronavirus outbreak. To headline, we are not cancelling our regularly scheduled meetings the second and fourth Thursdays at 7:00 PM, but we are taking every precaution to protect all our brothers and sisters in the Lodge as well our friends in the community. This includes, but is not limited to, changes to our procedure to keep our meetings safe. At present, no member of the lodge has been directly exposed to the virus, and no one, to my knowledge, is manifesting symptoms. But this may change, (in which case you will be informed) and we must be diligent and proactive, especially when the safety and well-being of older and vulnerable members of our community are at risk. As such, we are implementing two changes to our procedure in order to maximize effective social distancing: Calling in for meetings Members of our community who are at increased risk of exposure (such as healthcare- and service-providers), older and vulnerable individuals, and those who are suffering any illness whatsoever are strongly encouraged not to attend meetings. If you wish, you are able to call into our meetings, so long as your connection is secure and your conversation cannot be overheard by any non-member. Beginning March 11, 2020, we will have the capacity to conference call at all lodge and committee meetings until further notice. If you wish to call into a meeting, please contact me directly. I or another officer will help you get set up. Without giving us prior notice, we cannot guarantee you will be able to call in. Changes to Opening Ritual Effective immediately, we will not be using grips or passwords to examine members during the opening ritual until further notice. As long as the Warden is satisfied that all present at the meeting are members (to be done visually), we can conduct our meetings normally while minimizing the risk of transmission of the virus. Elements of any other ritual that carry increased risk of transmission will be adjusted on a case-by-case basis. This should not be an issue for our regular meetings. These are the most high-visibility changes made to protect our community, but rest assured this is not the limit of our efforts. We are abiding by the orders of King County Health Officer. We will clean and disinfect meeting areas and high-touch surfaces prior to regular meetings. Proper hand washing, sanitation, and cleaning is readily available. Non-essential meetings and gatherings will be rescheduled or conducted remotely, whenever possible. And we will be completely transparent with you, the member, in the event of any change. If you have any recommendations, questions, or concerns, I sincerely hope you will contact me, another officer, or the Grand Lodge of Washington directly. This is not the time for irrational fear and anxiety, nor is it a time for complacency. It is essential for us to do all we can to keep our community safe, happy, and healthy, and that has always been at the heart of Odd Fellowship. This is as true today as it will be after this crisis has passed. In Friendship, Love, and Truth, Clinton Attaway Noble Grand, Ballard-Alki Odd Fellows Lodge #170
