Upcoming Lodge Meetings & Events 

October. Lodge Meeting

Saturday., October. 20, 5 PM Potluck followed by a presentation  by Tim Christenson will discuss "Norway in World War II

Tim Christenson draws on his personal ties to Norway and his professional background in history and the military for a presentation on "Norway in World War II." Tim will describe the decision making that went on in Oslo, Berlin, and London as Norway's strategic position on the North Sea drew the country into Europe's expanding conflict. We’ll learn how Norway's military and political influence in London and Washington helped determine the course of the war, and discuss Norwegian resistance during and after the German invasion. Please bring stories from family, friends, or other sources to include in the mix. We may even have time to hear some peculiarly Norwegian humor engendered by the war.  Tim is a longstanding member of the Lodge, but it’s taken an invitation to speak to uncover details of his career, including degrees from St.  Olaf, Harvard, the Fletcher School at Tufts University, and a Fulbright Scholar- ship at Gutenberg University in Mainz, Germany. His Marine Corps career involved security and intelligence issues that he probably can’t tell us about. Currently he is director of the National Intelligence University’s Academic Center, and is Associate Pastor at Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Springfield, VA. Non-members are welcome. Please bring a side dish or dessert to share.
