“I.O.O.F is the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and I was first woman of two women accepted as an Odd Fellow (formerly women could be only serve as Rebekahs). Monday Weekly Magazine (now out of print) got wind of the change and one of my favourite (former) journalists, Jason Youmans, was given the scoop. He wrote an amusing story on January 11, 2008 here which now stands in the archives of Odd Fellow history”. If MM page is no longer available on-line, see Pdf
