Lodge’s new home is completed!

It’s done!  A Certificate of Occupancy for the Fritz Cornell Nordic Hall was issued by the Island County on June 6, 2013 and by the month’s end, the new Hall was furnished with tables & lovely upholstered chairs that will seat one hundred persons.

A great round of applause goes especially to Dick Johnson and Maurice Aasland,  as without their  thousands of hours of effort this building project  would never  have been even possible.    Efforts of many many others have been critical to the completion of building as well.  Lodge members and friends have contributed hundreds of hours planning,  landscaping, furnishing, and otherwise supporting this major project.

The land on which the Fritz Cornell Nordic Hall has been  built was purchased in late 2011.  Construction began in September 2012.  Funding for this major project was gifted to the Lodge by member Fritz Cornell upon his death. Fritz was born in Norway on September 20, 1927,  immigrated to the United States in 1947 and died of leukemia on Dec 16, 2008.

An Open House for the public will be held on Saturday, August 24th, 1:00-6:00pm. All are welcome!
