Newly-elected Lodge officers will be installed at the upcoming General Lodge meeting on January 20th. Doing the honors will be Doug Warne, former president of Leif Erikson Lodge, host of the weekly Scandinavian Hour for 58 years and the recent recipient of the St. Olav Medal awarded by King Harald V of Norway for Doug’s distinguished service to Norway.
In addition to the installation of new officers, Camille Richey, a second-year PhD student in the Scandinavian Studies at the University of Washington will give a presentation about Finnish painter, Aksell Gallen-Kallela and his important contribution to the construction of the Finnish identity.
A lunch of “frikadeller” red cabbage and potatoes will be served following the program. A $7.00 donation will be appreciated from those wishing to stay for the lunch.
