Initiation Ceremony

The Magnificent Seven

Seven elected Initiates became Members of Ocean View Lodge #143, HMB Odd Fellows, in a hybrid ceremony. The in-person at-the-Lodge ceremony had no physical contact, was shortened and the Initiation Team limited in number to increase protection during these Pandemic times. After the Initiation Ceremony a group picture was taken and socialization with refreshments ensued.

The Zoom meeting started at 7:30 with about 20 members attending on Zoom. The new Members introduced each other on Zoom to existing Members. Then, new Members were sent to Zoom Rooms with smaller groups of members to give members a chance to visit in small groups. Our Chaplin gave us a Minute for Reflection and our Vice Grand ended with a recitation of the Odd Fellows Creed.

The funds raised by the community organization will support industrial arts at the high school and at Cunha Intermediate School and contribute to the scholarship fund at the high school. The gift also includes $1,000 for the robotics club at the high school.
