WHILE ODD FELLOWSHIP IS NOT A RELIGIOUS INSTITUTION, MANY OBJECTIVES ARE BASED UPON THE TEACHINGS OF THE HOLY BIBLE. BY 1796 ODD FELLOW ORGANIZATIONS WERE NUMEROUS IN ENGLAND. T ARE SEVERAL DIFFERENT REASONS GIVEN FOR THE STRANGE NAME. "THAT COMMON LABORING MEN SHOULD ASSOCIATE THEMSELVES TOGETHER AND FORM A FRATERNITY FOR SOCIAL UNITY AND FELLOWSHIP AND FOR MUTUAL HELP. THE FOUNDERS WERE THREE BOAT BUILDERS, A COMEDIAN, AND A VOCALIST-A GROUP BEFITTING THE NAME "ODD FELLOWS" INDEED......
