Fraternal Greetings from District 13 !
As the title states, today was a very productive day for the Grand United Order of Oddfellows in America and Jurisdiction…..especially if you belong to one of the lodges in the Palmetto State! Firstly, based on the love from our Grand Master as he took time out of his busy schedule to stop into our state for an impromptu meeting of the minds. Secondly with all who were present this unusually warm morning we were able to gaze upon a piece of our history….our (former) District Grand Lodge! The presence of our brethren and sisters past could be felt throughout. We had the opportunity to fellowship amongst the brothers both old and new, which was truly a blessing. Last but definitely not least, the Charter for Wayman no.1339 was passed from the Grand Master’s hands to the brothers of the newly reinstated Lodge out of Columbia, SC ! One of the oldest dispensations granted in Oddfellows history for South Carolina. We would like to thank the Grand Master for his tutelage although brief, but we look forward to his lessons as time progresses ! We would also like to thank the Committee of Management in aiding us in our Growth as a state and District. The future looks bright for Oddfellowship as long as we continue on the path of righteousness, under the watchful eye of the Creator,with our hearts in our hands…..FLT !
