History / Biographical
The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) began in 17th century England when a group of men organized themselves for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and the pursuit of various projects for the benefit of mankind. Odd Fellows are known as "The Three Link Fraternity" which stands for Friendship, Love and Truth. The first Odd Fellow Lodge in Ontario was instituted on June 17, 1845 in the village of Belleville. The IOOF in Rodney, Ontario was established on May 20, 1892, with charter members William Morris, A. Wismer, A. Humphrey, J.S. Robertson, J.H. Barnes, N.S. Lusty, Charles Grant, William Mapes, and W. Peer. At the Lodge's first meeting in the Barnes Block twenty new members were initiated by members of the Ridgetown Lodge. Meetings after 1903 were held on the second floor of the first brick building of Mistele Ltd. store with entrance by an outside stairs on the north side. In 1943, the Oddfellows purchased the Morris building on the northeast corner of Furnival and Clark Streets. Membership in the lodge peaked in 1955 with 137 members on the roll. For many years, they assumed responsibility for one of the most important social events of the year in this community, the annual "IOOF at Home". The Lodge also participated in many community service and fund-raising activities in Rodney and surrounding area. Rodney members took an active part on district committees in raising funds for new equipment for hospitals in St. Thomas, London, Tillsonburg, and Newbury. In association with the Rebekahs, the Humanitarian Services Committee maintained a supply of articles such as hospital beds, wheel chairs, crutches and walkers. They were loaned free to anyone who needed them. Members also held Ambliopia Clinics in the interest of better vision for children. The IOOF Rodney Lodge No. 291 existed under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of Ontario Erie District No. 15. IOOF Rodney Lodge No. 291 disbanded in the early 1990s.

History / Biographical
The Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (IODE), Talbot Chapter, Dutton, Ontario, held its organizational meeting on September 11, 1914. The Chapter disbanded in 1928, holding its' last meeting on February 10, 1928. "The Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire was founded in 1900 in Fredericton, NB, by Margaret Polson Murray of Montréal, who envisioned an organization of women devoted to encouraging imperialism. Beginning with an educational mandate promoting Britain and British institutions through the schools, it became actively involved in both world wars in supporting Canada's efforts on behalf of Britain and the allies. In 1979 the name IODE was officially adopted. IODE chapters are made up of women from many walks of life with a common interest in volunteering their time to improve the quality of life for children, youth and those in need, through educational, social service and citizenship programs. Other areas of interest included immigration, child welfare, community health and social services. In recent years the IODE has concentrated more on community affairs, supporting Canadian educational, cultural and social developments. Although its membership has declined it remains an active women's organization, with 8000 members in 400 branches in 1999."
