In November 2012, Sister Diane Walsh, who is an Odd Fellow in the jurisdiction of British Columbia and a member of Odd Fellows Lodge #1 in Victoria, was invited as a guest to attend a banquet in the District of Columbia in Washington DC where she met with members of Friendship Lodge and commemorated the connection between BC and DC Oddfellows. In addition, she was able to archive stories and revitalize the importance of cross-border relationships in preparation for the Grand Sessions in 2014 which are to take place in Victoria Canada.
