Odd Fellows take steps toward change

From page A4 | February 12, 2014 |

Members of the Davis Odd Fellows Lodge, armed with pedometers, will record their steps for the next six months, and see if — collectively — they can take 50 million steps in that time.

Longtime Odd Fellow and Past Noble Grand Dave Rosenberg issued the challenge to the lodge, and it was readily accepted.

“One of the best ways to stay healthy and to keep that weight down is the simplest — walking,” Rosenberg said in a news release. “It will be interesting to see if Odd Fellows can meet the challenge. That’s a lot of steps!”

It is expected that about 50 members of the Odd Fellows Lodge will use pedometers to record their daily steps. They will report their steps to Sharla Cheney, a member and past financial secretary of the lodge, who will keep the collective tally.

Around September, the lodge will determine if members have met the challenge.
“It takes about 2,000 steps to walk one mile, so we are talking about 25,000 miles walked in the next six months,” Rosenberg said. “That’s the equivalent of walking once around the entire planet Earth. Seems strangely appropriate for Odd Fellows.”

The Davis Odd Fellows Lodge was chartered in Davis in 1870 and is a fraternal order of 208 members, almost equally divided between men and women. The Odd Fellows Hall at 415 Second St. was built in 1955.

The lodge is dedicated to community service and support and hosts myriad projects, including Breakfast with Santa, A Taste of Davis, the Davis Classic Film Fest, Breakfast with the Bunny and a Picnic Day pancake breakfast.
Information on the lodge can be found at www.davislodge.org.
