Well, I see you are from NW Chicago area. I moved from there almost 2 years ago. My IOOF lodge is 492 out of Carpentersville. Its a pretty strong lodge and I will always maintain my membership there. If you are interested in getting back into the order I'm sure they could make it happen. We have a somewhat diverse group of brothers. Never a dull moment LOL. There are several other lodges in the area that have been "Re-Birthed" as well. Let me know if you want any information.
