"Liberty Lodge 120 is a determined group of men of various ages offering an extended family, an Order who believes in a Supreme Being, committed and enthusiastic, creative, courageous, caring and sincere, honorable and benevolent, diverse, and a caring and assisting group who would like to carry the message of Odd Fellowship to our communities.
We desire to work with other branches of Odd Fellowship to strengthen and motivate our members with a positive attitude to increase membership through action for today and the future. To show others we help mankind, through our actions within our Order with a goal to have members who are friendly, helpful and enthusiastic creating awareness with an outward focus within the community."
Liberty Lodge takes part in the local community in many ways. The Tatamagouche branch gives a bursary to a graduate of North Colchester High School every year. It has also sent at-risk youth and youth whose families are facing financial difficulties to camp with all the essentials they require. The group also has a program to help those who require medical equipment and medication but cannot afford them. The program ensures the medicine and necessary devices are given straight to the individuals in need. Every Christmas, Liberty Lodge helps a family going through tough times by providing them with food, clothing and whatever essentials they need. Members also provide drivers for the Meals on Wheels program when needed.
On a larger scale, the organization donates to the IWK, CNIB, Christmas Daddies and cancer research. The Oddfellows’ main purpose is to always be ready to help people in the community who fall on hard times, whose needs are not able to be met with current existing government programs. The members of the Liberty Lodge always have their eyes and ears open for those who may need a helping hand. The group does a lot of its work with the utmost discretion and many times individuals and families who receive help have no idea where it came from.
