Heritage Day will soon be here-March 21, 2020. We have changed the hours to 9:30 -2:30pm. The day starts off with the popular Leif to Leif 5km Run/Walk; registration at 8:00am and the run/walk at 9:00.
Our friends at Skål Beer Hall are once again generously providing prizes for the top finishers. All participants can enjoy heart waffles with lingonberries and coffee after the race. The awards ceremony will start about 10:15 in the main auditorium. Lodge doors will open for the event at 9:30 am. On the first floor you will be greeted by Marit Thomsen and Carol Lindgren who can tell you about the Immigrant Trunk, filled with items that your grandparents might have brought with them on their journey from the old country. Thanks to the National Nordic Museum for loaning the trunk to us.
Enticing smells of lefse, krumkake and vafler will tempt you into the Kaffestua, transformed into our Bakeri. If you can tear yourself away from all these temptations go up to the main hall where there will be people demonstrating rosemaling, woodcarving and nål binding; find out more details about your bunad from Jody Grage who will MC the bunad parade starting at 12:30pm. The kafe will be serving your favorite smørbrød, erte suppe, Verden’s Beste Kake and other baked goods.
Thanks to Banner Bank for providing free parking once again.
