History / Biographical
33rd Battalion Ladies’ Group was formed in April of 1935, by the wives of the members of the 33rd Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force. The 33rd Battalion, Canadian Expeditionary Force was an infantry battalion of the Canadian Expeditionary Force during the Great War. The Battalion was authorized on 7 November 1914 and embarked for Great Britain on 1 April 1916. It was re-designated as the 33rd Reserve Battalion, CEF on 6 April 1916 and it provided reinforcements for the Canadian Corps in the field until 6 July 1916, when its personnel were absorbed by the 36th Battalion, CEF. The battalion was disbanded on 17 July 1917.
The 33rd Battalion Ladies’ Group held monthly social meetings. The last entry in their meeting minutes book was October 1968. The groups likely had connections to the 33rd Battalion Comrade’s Club, a men’s social group.
The donor of the records in this fonds, Joan Turner, stated the following about her recollections about the group: "My grandfather, Harry Heard, was a member of the 33rd Battalion in WWI. After the war, several members of the group would meet at the legion for Friday night (or other nights) drinks, share stories etc. Their wives formed the 33rd Battalion Ladies’ Group. My grandmother, Florence Heard, was part of this group and often served as secretary - hence she had the minute book. My understanding is that the group dissolved due to few remaining members still alive and able to participate. I think it was in existence until the 1960’s. They would visit fellow members in hospital, arrange showers, trousseau teas, refreshments at wakes and funerals, celebrate birthdays, and anniversaries. I don’t know of any specific philanthropy work that they did, but knowing my Grandmother, I’m sure they donated their time and energies whenever possible. My Grandmother was a very strict tea totaler and only allowed for the drinks for my Grandfather at the Legion. It was difficult (understatement) in WWI. I know Harry was in the trenches and was injured twice. It was understood that the men needed an outlet to vent, share and deal with the horrible memories of traumas they experienced. Despite the fact that most of the members of the 33rd came from St Thomas and Elgin areas, they also originated from England and were relatively new immigrants at the time of the war - very proud to fight for Canada".

History / Biographical
The Imperial Order of the Daughters of the Empire (IODE), Centennial Chapter, St. Thomas, Ontario, was established February 19, 1981 and was bestowed the name St. Thomas Centennial Chapter in honour of the city’s 100th anniversary. When the chapter was first established it had fourteen members. The Chapter was disbanded by December 31, 2013. "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."

History / Biographical
The first Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) in North America was established by Thomas Wildey in 1819, creating Lodge #1 of Baltimore. In 1825, four state Grand Lodges in America established the “Grand Lodge of the United States”, with John Pawson Entwistle as its first Deputy Grand Master. Upon successful petitioning to the Grand Lodge of the United States, the first IOOF lodge was formed in Canada in 1843 and was called the Prince of Wales Lodge #1 in Montreal, Quebec. Soon after in 1844, the Grand Lodge of Canada was formed under the leadership of Grand Master W. M. B. Hartley, but it was the Grand Lodge of British North America that was granted quasi-independent jurisdiction from the Grand Lodge of the United States. This Canadian governing body was ultimately unsuccessful and in 1854 Canadian Odd Fellow Lodges were brought back under the jurisdiction of the Grand Lodge of the United States. A new Grand Lodge was established in 1855 in Canada West, which was later re-named Ontario. The Grand Lodge of Ontario helped sustain other lodges in Ontario following the disbandment of the Grand Lodge of British North America. The Elgin Lodge #32 was opened May 5, 1852 by P.G. Connor of St. Catharines. Due to dissension, the lodge disbanded in 1862 and remained closed until 1878, when it reopened with ten charter members including the Noble Grand, Brother A.J. Clark. The purpose of the IOOF is to act as a “co-ed international fraternal order” that works to promote personal and social development of its members. Odd Fellows support each other and raise each other up to be better people. They also help make the world a better place by supporting their environment and their community. The IOOF is a fellowship that radiates positive energy and support. grandlodgeofontario.ioof.net, ioof.net
