Twelve new members were admitted to the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge 169 on July 25. They range in age from 16 to 68. A formal initiation will be scheduled in the near future.

The new members are Sean Chaffee, a bartender; Robin Dewey, a health educator; Alekka Fullerton, an attorney; Graham Fullerton, a high school student and water polo player; Michael Fullerton, a stay-at-home father; Kerry Daane Loux, a landscape architect; Dan Maguire, a Superior Court judge; Fran Maguire, a California Department of Public Health analyst; Jeff Munoz, who works in construction and security; Rea Nakanishi, retired; Ed Prieto, sheriff of Yolo County; and Mona Prieto, deputy chief of the California Highway Patrol.

When initiated, the new members will bring the total membership of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge to 195. The lodge was chartered in 1870 and has been a fixture in Davis for the past 142 years.

The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge helps the community by donating funds to charitable and community groups, providing use of the Odd Fellows Hall at little or no cost to nonprofit groups and through direct assistance to people.

Among the programs sponsored by the Lodge is Thursday Night Live!, a monthly series of live concerts; bingo, offered on the second Sunday of every month with all proceeds benefiting a local charitable or community group; assistance to frail seniors who need help with home projects; tree-planting work with Tree Davis; and a program through which members befriend people with mental illness.

“We try to have fun together as members of a fraternal order, and we respect the ancient rituals of the Odd Fellows,” said Noble Grand Kandice Fowler, “but we also focus a lot of our efforts to helping the greater community in which we live.”
