Welcome to the IOBG District 7 website. We are pleased to present this site for the convenience of members and friends. We will be using this site to keep our members informed about issues of importance to District 7 and the International.

District 7 stretches from the Lake Erie islands to parts of Pennsylvania and down to the Ohio river. District 7 has more members than any other district in the WORLD.

District 7 has many events planned to the West, East and South to involve our existing members and to recruit new ones. The geographical area that District 7 represents is much larger than our present clubs indicate. It is our goal to reach out to new clubs to expand our ranks and strengthen our District.

IOBG District 7 is proud to be the largest District in the International Order of the Blue Gavel.
