Instituted December 12, 1919, Van Nuys Lodge #442, is the Van Nuys chapter of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. 

Our Van Nuys lodge is part of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows.  Established in the United States in1819, Odd Fellows has over 10,000 lodges in 26 countries.  Our fraternity was the first national group to include both men and women.

Many great men and women have served as Odd Fellows.  Did you know that Franklin Delano Roosevelt was an Odd Fellow, and that the New Deal was created based on Odd Fellow principles?

We are expecting this year to be a time of growth for the lodge and are always looking for new members.  We intend to continue to enjoy each other's company, meet new people, and to be active in our community. If you have a big heart and want to be of service to your community and to humanity, consider applying to membership and become a new member.
