Sons to celebrate Syttende Mai
Angela Seitz and Phyllis Ibes presented their "Scandinavia in a Nutshell" program on Iceland to the Sons of Norway. They had both been there on a cultural exchange program. Iceland is a progressive country, but dependant on food imports, they said. The temperature rarely gets above 70 and seldom gets much below freezing.
Judy and John Hatlewick and Elmer and Jeri Balvik were guests and Genene Colbert, Karen Freeman and Andrea Eckstein were admitted as new members.
It was announced The Norwegian Troll Dancers and Wergeland Lodge will host the District 4 Folk dance workshop March 25-26, 2011. Dancers from Canada, Montana, Minnesota, South Dakota and North Dakota will attend.
