Odd Fellows lodge has charter reinstated
Alert Lodge 936 of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows has announced that it has had its charter reinstated after a brief period of dissolution.
The original charter had been granted in 1890, and the lodge had functioned continuously from then until 2013.
Through the years, other area lodges have dissolved and joined Alert Lodge 936, located in Rochester Mills above the post office.
They include Blairsville, Cherry Tree, Creekside, Elderton, Indiana, Marion Center, Plumville, Punxsutawney, Rossiter and Valier.
Alert Lodge 936 is actively seeking new members and invites former members and other interested individuals to contact Noble Grand Allen Ryen at (724) 286-3042 or Vice Grand David Hamilton at (724) 286-9193 (evenings) concerning applications for membership.
Meetings are held the second and fourth Thursdays of each month at 7 p.m.
