Gnomer Gunsten's Travels
Hallo. My name is Gnomer Gnutsen. I'm a Gnome and an Odd Fellow. I am currently on a quest of great importance. I'm a charter member of my home lodge, Los Angeles Golden Rule #35 IOOF. They have just celebrated the 150th anniversary of their establishment. It is their intention that I visit every lodge and bring them fellowship.

Our wise Nobel Grand, Gary Charpentier, of our sesquicentennial year, established the Gnomer Gnusten Fellowship Project to spread friendship and fellowship throughout our ranks. He realized that many of our projects have worked on our other links, Love and Truth, but not many on Friendship. He knows that by my travels from lodge to lodge this will increase and forge this link stronger. He knows our members will grow stronger and get new ideas from seeing how others run their lodge and speaking to them.

The project is very simple. Brother Charpentier asked me to travel and visit other lodges as the essimary of our lodge and send back photos and a bit about my visits. I travel by asking each lodge I visit to visit another lodge and take me there. Each lodge that accepts me has a solomn duty to visit another lodge. As I go from lodge to lodge eventually I will visit them all. I do enjoy travel and sight seeing, but it is fellowship that brings me the most joy. My travels are being collected and placed online.
