The Florida Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Delta Kappa is the only named Fraternity in the United States not associated with a College or University.  The fraternity’s local chapter of 50 brothers from a variety of different occupations including teachers, law enforcement, business owners, doctors and contractors meet weekly at their PDK Banquet Hall on SR. 54 in Odessa.  The rentals from their banquet hall help support not only the day to day operations but also local charities in the community.
