We are absolutely thrilled that you have entered our Essay Contest this year. We wish the best of luck to you!
We hope that you will tell people that you have entered and spread the word about our contest (but don’t let them copy your work!).
We hope you feel the way that we do about the importance of the history of the Odd Fellows in America and especially in California.
Much like the history of the California Missions are taught in class, we believe that what we have done is also worthy of teaching.
Again, we wish you the best of luck in this contest and we welcome you to our lodge to hear who the winner will be.
