Important message from Grand Secretary Paige, GUOOF

Hello Brothers and Sisters,

The July Full Board session convened in Philadelphia on July 12, 2019.  Brother Green attended and is well on the road to recovery but Brother Joe Mathurin, HDGM. presided during the business session.  Please note these two important agenda items that affect our entire membership:

Opinion: Item 18 – Sale of Odd Fellows materials

We are aware some members are selling Odd Fellows and Household material without oral or written permission from the Committee of Management. 

It is the Opinion of this Committee that the Grand Secretary will issue notifications to all members of the Order that any brother or sister who desires the vending of GUOOF materials must first receive approval from the COM. 

Additionally, once approval is received from the COM, ten percent (10%) royalty is expected from all individuals or groups generating sales. 

Submitted by:

William Harrison

Graham Paige

Bobby Stone

Herbert Boland

Secondly, selection of the 64th BMC site is in its final stage.  An announcement of the site and all costs involved should be forthcoming by the end of August 2019.



Grand Chambers, GUOOF donates hats and scarfs

On behalf of Bro. Vance Thorpe, National Co-Chair for Transportation; L’Tanya Graham, Most Worthy Chief Grand Ruler and the Grand Chambers of the Grand United Order of Odd Fellows gave a donation of hats and scarfs to the Helen Graham Cancer Center, Christana Hospital.

Bro. Thorpe would like to take this opportunity to thank the Grand Chambers and True Daughter Graham for their most generous gift on his behalf. He would also like to thank all those that have prayed for him, sent cards and calls. Please continue to keep Bro. Thorpe in your prayers as he heals.

“Dear Friend and Brother, We pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well” 3 John 1:2
