Meetings & Events

Lodge meetings are usually on the 3rd Friday or Saturday of the month from September through June, with picnics in July and August. Meetings are open to all with an interest in Norway. 

Each meeting features a cultural/educational program, often with a guest speaker. Most meetings have a potluck dinner, or a lighter "finger foods" or dessert-only potluck.

Upcoming Monthly Lodge Meetings

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

 Come hear about 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.  In addition to following Norwegian resistance during and after the German invasion, we'll also see how Norway's military and political influence in London and Washington helped the Allies determine the course of the war.  Bring along any stories you've heard from friends, family, or other sources and we'll include them in the mix.  we may even have time to hear about some of the peculiarly Norwegian humor that the war engendered."

November. Lodge Meeting
Saturday., November 17, 5 PM Potluck followed by a
re-telling of  the Vinland sagas by Owen and Elspeth Christianson

Come and listen to Owen and Elspeth Christianson re-tell the Vinland sagas. It’s a story of adventure and intrigue where a set a bed posts and murder caused the settlement of one land and the discovery of another, or for the love a women the first church in the new world was built.
