Hillsboro No. 1
Hillsboro United Youth Group
We are a co-ed unit of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows for the youth of our Order. While the Junior Odd Fellows is for boys and Theta Rho for girls, the United Youth Group was created to begin the process of learning the principles of Odd Fellowship: Friendship, Love, and Truth. It also creates awareness of the Youth programs of our Order to those from ages 8 to 18 years old (junior members for those under 8). Also allowed in the United Youth Group are Senior Members, who are members of the Odd Fellow Lodges and Rebekah Assembly to guide and help support the youth.
We do various community service and fundraising activities throughout the year like Valetines dinner, feed the homeless, street clean up, information booth at local outdoor markets, Hillsboro downtown association halloween (haunted house and games), holiday bazaar, and lodge Christmas dinner with more ideas always in the works.
In additon to community service and fundraising activites our youth also enjoy fun nights at the lodge which can include games, crafts, and potluck dinners. During the summer we get together for bbq's and outdoor fun.
