HMB Eagle Scout IDs Odd Fellows Gravesites

Photo-Essay by John Helmlinger.
For my Eagle Scout project we put markers in  the Odd Fellows cemetery to help people in locating where a grave stone would be.  The Markers we put in were all odd numbers identifying every other plot as shown on a historic map. This was a great project my friends and I learned a lot about concrete, wood working, and the history of Half Moon Bay.
The Odd Fellows cemetery in Half Moon Bay (north side of 92,  just east of Main St.) is the burial site of some people of local significance.   The Johnston’s are buried there.  They are well know for the house they owned here in Half Moon Bay. As well as R.I. Knapp who invented the side plow.

HMB Odd Fellows Lodge

Briefly, Who are the Odd Fellows?

The Independent Order of Odd Fellows (IOOF) is an international fraternity that traces its roots back to 17th century England, where small groups of working-class people banded together, using some of their wages to create a common fund that they could turn to in times of sickness, loss of a job, or death. These altruistic groups became known as “odd fellows” since it was then considered odd or peculiar to find people organized for the purpose of giving aid to those in need and pursuing projects for the benefit of all mankind.

HMB Odds Established 1868 ~ Follow link to their history.
150th Anniversary in 2018!

The Odd Fellows exercise the founding principles of “friendship, love and truth” and “aiding the community … at large in every way possible.”

Bedtime Stories ~ Charge of the Light Brigade!

Bedtime Stories presents the poem The Charge of Light Brigade, read by Liz Evans (formerly Knier). The Charge of the Light Brigade was written by Alfred Lord Tennyson in 1854 after the bloody battle of Balaclava during the Crimean war.

This may be tough to listen to for some, but Liz captures it perfectly. After all, her dad, Earl Knier, read it to her for bedtime stories. He was World War II pilot, who was the son of World War I pilot. Military families look to this poem as the hallmark of what must happen in the field. Men (and women, now) must follow their general, even if the general is in error.

Notice the front page newpaper story used for the cover of the book in 1854.

Push the button and let the kids listen.  Great in the car, or while your doing chores, or making dinner!  From your phone, or your computer.  With book, without a book.

If you like to read bedtime stories contact the Buzz Studios and come on down and record!

If you enjoyed listening to this bedtime story, you may enjoy reading it too. Find the book at Inkspell Books in Half Moon Bay!

Thanks for listing to Bedtime Stories on Coastside Buzz.

This series is produced in the studios.
