Sons of Norway - Elvesvingen Lodge 1-582

The mission of Sons of Norway is to promote, preserve, and cherish a lasting appreciation of the heritage and culture of Norway and other Nordic countries while growing soundly as a fraternal benefit society and offering maximum benefits to its members.


Hilsen Fra Presidenten, Karen Abbott 

I was looking for pleasant surprises as this new decade began but, instead, I have been very 
saddened, along with our Elvesvingen family, to find out two of our members passed away in 
January. It is a sharp reminder to connect with friends and loved ones as much as possible in 
the coming year. 
We had a great turn-out at the January meeting. Speaker Marty Seifert was very interesting as 
he described what went into writing his book, and the lunch prepared by Co-Chairs Dick & 
Kris Norland and Carol Seifert along with their serving committee was exceptionally yummy. 
Our next program will be Norwegian Bingo! Please join us on February  8th at 11:00 a.m. in 
the Heritage Room. I’d like to thank Lois Kitzmann who has again come up with many prizes 
for the winners! Also, at this meeting William Stelter, one of our scholarship winners, will be 
telling us about the time he spent at language camp last summer. 
I have been asked to share information with you. The Stoughton Norwegian Dancers will be at 
St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN on Sunday, March 8th, performing at 2:00 p.m. The group 
began in 1953 and is still going strong today some 67 years later. They tour nationally and 
internationally and perform 50-60 times every school year. They entertain audiences of all 
ages with acrobatic stunts, precision folk dancing and humor. For more information, go to: 
The month of February has many special days. You can start out by enjoying the lutefisk and 
meatball smorgasbord at Dell Lutheran Church in Frost on the 2nd (more information in the 
newsletter), then celebrate Norwegian Mother’s Day on the 9th, and Valentine’s day on the 
14th. Enjoy some quality time with your special people.

Ha det bra!
