After much soul searching, we have decided to cancel our planned Nordic Fest
which was to be held on Friday, June 16
We have realized that the timing is not ideal (many competing activities for many members) and we did not want to hold a subpar Nordic Fest that would not be successful. Because we did not have the option of holding this on a Saturday, we felt we likely would not have decent attendance, and we were missing some key features of the event that would have made it successful, even if we had a decent turnout. We hope to reconsider or reconfigure the event to help everyone feel it would be a worthwhile event to support, produce and attend.
We apologize to all the vendors who had agreed to be there, and to all those who were working so hard to pull the event together, as well as to all those who had planned to attend. We will regroup and determine how we can produce an event for which we would all be proud to share. It may not happen until next winter or spring.
Thank you, and until next time,
Vernene Scheurer, President

Our President for 2023 is Vernene Scheurer!
Our congratulation to VERNENE SCHEURER for becoming our Norwegian of the Year for 2021. Not only has she served as President during a very difficult year, she has recruited wonderful and competent board members. Vernene has kept our lodge together and moving forward despite the pandemic. Zoom is nice, but it will be better to meet in person and she's worked toward that goal.
Our Annual LUTEFISK DINNER was on the Fourth Saturday of October. We decided this summer to not host one this year as we don't have enough members to work the dinner in the manner you expect, and that we're proud of. We will have a couple of torsk dinners instead and will send notices to you if you've signed up when you open our web site.
