Order of Odd Fellows gives back

Members of Sequoia Lodge No. 14, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, donated $31,000 in scholarship funds to College of the Redwoods on behalf of the I.O.O.F. Lodges of the Eel River Valley. Some of these lodges were instituted prior to 1892. One scholarship will be available to a vocational student each semester. The gift was presented to Sue Wiegman of College of the Redwoods on Dec. 5, 2012.
