Building Big with Ainslie Heilich
Joined by the wonderful Ainslie Heilich of Tuscola Lodge #316, in Tuscola IL. Josh and Billy learn about Ainslie’s discovery of Odd Fellows and how he re-instituted the lodge after a 60 year slumber. Ainslie is a builder in our Order for the digital world that we are now part of. He is also part of the trio of members behind (or in front of the mics) over at the Three Links Odd Cast. Ainslie mentions a book for us to check out; it’s a coffee-table book will plenty of story material too: As Above, So Below: Art of the American Fraternal Society, 1850-1930; Adele, Webb, Byrne .
If podcasts are not enough Odd Fellows for you read through the hundreds of Modern Guide articles at Ainslie’s other project: https://oddfellowsguide.com/
And a little Easter Egg to find at the end from Josh for you to enjoy.
