“These 16 new members bring new energy to our Davis lodge and bring our total membership to 169,” Dave Reed, noble grand (president) of the Davis Odd Fellows, said in a news release. “We are delighted to welcome this diverse group of women and men. This lodge continues to be a fast-growing, active and dynamic fraternity, dedicated to doing good works in the community.”

Added David Rosenberg, chairman of the membership and initiation committee, “Equally gratifying is the fact that the day after we initiated these 16 new members, we started our next class of potential members. We have 21 applicants rarin’ to go to join this lodge.”

The Davis Odd Fellows, officially known as Davis Lodge No. 169, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, was chartered in 1870. More than 570 local residents have been members of the lodge since its inception.

The Davis Odd Fellows provide funds and other community support to numerous charitable organizations, including CommuniCare Health Centers, Community Employment Services, Yolo Hospice, Yolo Suicide Prevention, Mexican-American Concilio, Martin Luther King Jr. Day organizing committee and Pine Tree Gardens.

The lodge hosts the popular Breakfast with Santa, a pancake breakfast on Picnic Day and monthly charity bingo games, and organized the World’s Greatest Bicycle Parade and a “Hope for Haiti” fundraiser.
