The command of the IOOF is to”visit the sick, relieve the distressed, bury the dead and educate the orphan.” Specifically, IOOF today are dedicated to the following purposes:

  • To improve and elevate the character of mankind by promoting the principles of friendship, love, truth, faith, hope, charity and universal justice.
  • To help make the world a better place to live by aiding each other, the community, the less fortunate, the youth, the elderly, the environment and the community in every way possible.
  • To promote good will and harmony amongst peoples and nations through the principle of universal fraternity, holding the belief that all men and women regardless of race, nationality, religion, social status, gender, rank and station are brothers and sisters.
  • Ideally, an Odd Fellows lodge is a place for fellowship in all its forms, from hanging out and just having fun, to discussion, to networking, to collaboration on creative and constructive projects, all with an eye not only on our own satisfaction but on what we might offer to the community at large. An ideal lodge is a great venue for a lot of positive energy and all members are encouraged to contribute their share.

In addition, lodges provide an international social network of brothers and sisters that extends to 30 countries worldwide. If travelling is an interest, membership can provide a valuable network that will very much welcome an international visitor, and assist in their enterprises, and certainly their travels wherever possible.



The Brookneal Woman's Club was chartered March 25, 1949.  The object of the club shall be to promote higher, cultural, social and moral conditions, and to foster a generous public spirit in the Town of Brookneal and surrounding community. 

The club participates in various projects for the Brookneal community.  They host a community Thanksgiving service each year in November at a local church in the community to include music and speakers.  The club awards a scholarship to a graduating high school senior each year.  

Meetings are held at the Brookneal Community Center dining hall, 261 Main Street, Brookneal, the 3rd Monday of each month in September, October, January, February, March and April.  The December meeting is usually an outing for the club, and their final meeting of the club year in May is usually a meal held at a special venue.
