It is with esteemed honor that I announce the resurrection of St. James Lodge #1455 of the Grand United Order of OddFellows out of Atlanta, Georgia ! With the consolidated efforts of South Carolina’s District 13 another step forward has been taken! Our chief goal is to breathe life back into this order and I am proud to say that we are bearing fruit from the oddfellows tree. This lodge was initially brought into existence in 1870, a mere 5 years after our brothers and sisters were emancipated! There are many who share a hand in this arduous task that is indeed worth our consolidation ! We must press on and continue to be a light so bright the sun gotta wear shades …….
Atlanta’s Auburn community was a beacon for black business and quickly rose to prominence and prosperity……like them, our new torch bearing brothers will again shine bright !
This has been one of the most important weekends for the brothers in South Carolina and the order in general ! Many many more to come yall so stay tuned! Special thanks to District 13 Grand Master Shawn Cannon and Brother Tim Reed and the rest of the degree team that traveled south to assist in our growth! Speaking of growth, I want to welcome my brother Geoffrey Powell into our #Mysteriousthree ! I am honored to be among you brothers and together we will be a force for #Friendship #Love and #Truth! #guoof #guoofof #oddfellow #Oddfellowship #3links #flt #oddhistory #philanthropy #doforself #fraternal #threelinks
