Lodge celebrates its 11th anniversary!

Whidbey Island Nordic Lodge members and their guests together celebrated their 11th birthday on Saturday, May 12th.   A delicious salmon entree along with a wide variety of Scandinavian side-dishes provided by those attending,  were thoroughly enjoyed by all. Guest speaker Terry Clayton spoke on the commonalities of the Nordic nations.  The talk Terry delivered is available on his website.

The Whidbey Island Nordic Lodge was intituted on May 19th, 2001.  Efforts to form a Lodge on Whidbey Island began in 1999, when Sid Iverson began a campaign to identify and assess the interest of Scandinavians on Whidbey Island in having a lodge.  As a result of Iverson’s efforts, which included the mailing of 750 postcards inviting people with Scandinavian names to informational and organizational meetings,  the Whidbey Island Nordic Lodge came into being with 87 initial charter members representing all the Nordic countries.
