Order of the Orioles

On my long commute to work this morning, traveling a road that I have travelled daily for the past 10 years, I spotted something that I hadn't noticed previously, a sign proclaiming Order of the Orioles. It turns out this is a fraternal, social, and charitable organization founded in 1910 that has a strong presence in West Virginia; there are 3 Nests (as local clubs are called) within a 20-mile radius of Martinsburg in Berkeley County. As the photos on the organization's Web site attest, these folks know how to have a good time. They also have a neat logo featuring a Baltimore Oriole.
