Chartered in 1974 we serve the small community of Odessa and area in Lennox & Addington County. It is part of Loyalist Township named for the United Empire Loyalists who settled along the shores of Lake Ontario after the American Revolution.

Odessa, orginally named Millcreek, was renamed by its postmaster to commemorate the British Victory at Odessa in the Ukraine during the Crimean War. The village is known for its historic Babcock Mill built in 1856, a planning mill and basket factory that manufactured the "Babcock Baskets". The Mill is featured on our club pin.
