Sons of Norway members met at Ave Maria Jan. 21.

The District IV convention will be held in Fargo June 19-21.

Donations to the Ski for Lights program and Ave Maria were approved.

Several members attended a Daughters of Norway meeting in Fargo on Jan. 18. That group’s meeting will be at the Harwood Community Center at 1 p.m. March 8.

It was reported that five members rode or walked with the SON float in the Jamestown Holiday Dazzle Parade and that more lights have been purchased for the float.

The program was on bunads (Norwegian costumes) and included books, pictures and a DVD showing bunads from a region of Norway. Each region has a bunad that is unique to its area. Men, women and children wear them on special occasions, such as weddings, funerals and Syttende Mai.

Hosts for January were Nathan and Gloria Harr.

The next meeting will be at 7 p.m. Feb. 18 at Ave Maria. Lois Knudson and Laurel Gusaas are hosting. Anyone interested in attending a meeting is welcome. For more information, call Linda Mohn at 252-8495.
