Lodge members celebrated their 12th Anniversary as well as Syttende Mai on Saturday May 11th with great food and fun. Guest speaker for the event was Shirley Fjoslien, a long-time Seattle area resident of Norwegian Heritage who volunteers for the Nordic Heritage Museum. Shirley delighted everyone with a talk about Scandinavian Influences in the Pacific Northwest that included countless informative facts and tales that peaked everyone’s interest – even other long time Seattle area residents!
Members also said farewell at this celebration to the Coupeville Rec Hall, which has been a regular monthly meeting place for several years.
Beginning in September 2013, the Lodge will hold its monthly meeting and celebrations in their new building located at 63 Jacobs Road, Coupeville.
