We’ll provide a meat course and drinks.Please bring a side dish or dessert to share. Come try your hand at kubb, the “Viking lawn game.” Great fun for all ages.

Reading Circle's August Selection

The Reading Circle will meet on Tuesday, August 27th, to discuss Jon Fo
sse's Boathouse, considered by many to be his best novel. It is vintage Fosse with much rambling and repetition in a rather extreme form of stream of consciousness. The narrator is a man who rarely leaves his house after a chance meeting with Knut, an old childhood friend, and his wife. He becomes obsessed with this encounter and his life begins to completely unravel as he thinks of nothing else. If you plan to attend, contact Christine Meloni







Sign Up Now for Longship Cruise, Sept. 7

Our Lodge is invited for a voyage on The Longship Company’s 39 foot replica Viking boat Sae Hrafn (Sea Raven) on September 7. Rain date is September 14. We’ll depart at noon from a private dock in Avenue, MD. The trip will last around four hours with a short shore break in the middle. As a crew member you will help row the longship but no experience is needed. The rowing is not too strenuous. If the winds are favorable, the sail will be hoisted. A towboat will accompany us at all times.Avenue, Maryland is in southern Maryland, about an hour and 40 minutes from Norway House. Bring lunch, snacks and plenty of water. Space is limited. All are welcome. Priority given to Lodge members.
