Submitting Newsletter Content

Lodge members and others are invited to submit announcements and articles for inclusion in the newsletter.

In addition to being a way to share information about lodge events and activities, the Capital Viking is also a great place to help others learn more about anything related to Norway or Norwegian-Americans. Pretty much anything is welcome, as long as you think others would be interested.

Suggestions include:

  • event announcements
  • book or music reviews
  • photos from your trip to Norway
  • photos from your Syttende Mai party
  • personal stories about growing up in Norway or growing up Norwegian-American
  • informational pieces on anything Norwegian, such as lutefisk, skiing, hardanger, trolls, Edvard Munch, Norwegian history
  • anecdotes or tips from your experiences with Norwegian cooking, genealogy, rosemaling, crafts, etc. (photos great here too)
  • recipes
  • death notices of lodge members
