Ocean View Lodge #143 is proud to announce the open recruitment period for applicants to be chosen as our Lodge’s delegate to the 2019 Pilgrimage for Youth.

Since 1949, the Odd Fellows and Rebekahs have offered this grand opportunity to youth from the United States, Canada and many other countries. For young adults interested in world affairs, international relations, economics and/or political sciences this is an opportunity of a lifetime exchanging views on education, politics and religion.

Each student, or delegate as they are called while on the tour, will participate in comprehensive discussions with other young people from around the world as well as have the opportunity to make new and lifelong friendships. In addition, students experience one of the greatest cities in the world: New York. The Odd Fellows and Rebekahs Pilgrimage for Youth program has been growing in popularity and gaining public attention in the United States, Canada and abroad.



Our membership is growing. We’re offering more events. The community deserves easy access to our space that is welcoming to all. This demands we make some critically important renovations to our historic Lodge — adding an elevator and modern ADA compliant bathrooms. Help the Odd Fellows, Half Moon Bay, and you — keep GOING UP — to more concerts, dances, lectures, movies, and more.

The idea is a simple one; the process can be a bit more creative. Ocean View Lodge 143 is exploring the idea of installing an elevator in their beautiful historic building located on Main Street right in the center of town.

LOTUS (Life Opens Through Unexpected Sorrow)

LOTUS is a Half Moon Bay Odd Fellows committee organized to provide peer grief support, comfort, and assistance to those in our coastal communities who have lost their partner or spouse.

Past Grand Ed Haussler passed away on November 14th, 2016, at 7:10 pm just as the fog cleared over the skies of Half Moon Bay revealing one the brightest full moons in 82 years guiding his way home. We will all miss his zest for life, his humor, his salty and uncensored conversation without it being offensive. Ed was one of a kind. 

Heart in Hand


For our 2018 Sesquicentennial Celebration, we have chosen the heart in an open palm as our symbol of charity, given from the heart.
