Sons of Norway learns about ale habits


The Wergeland Lodge Sons of Norway met Oct. 16 at Ave Maria Village. Jodi Bunde presented a slideshow on beer making. Norse god Odin is credited with teaching Norwegians on how to brew beer. Ale drinking in Norway was in the 1500s-1900s. Wooden bowls filled with ale were passed person to person at community gatherings.

The Troll Dancers had their fall nursing home performances at Carrington, Valley City and Jamestown.

Gloria Harr and Chad Brinster will serve as the nominating committee for 2019 officers. A report will be due at the November meeting.
