Update on the 2020 Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast

Due to continued health and safety concerns surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, our event sponsor, the Sons of Norway Foundation, has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast. In light of the current executive orders from Minnesota Governor Tim Walz and the Minnesota Department of Health with regards to large gatherings, our NATB event would not be a safe environment for our guests. While we are saddened to have to cancel this annual event that we all look forward to, we believe this is the safest decision for all of you and our Nordic community.

Though we cannot meet in person, we would love to continue the philanthropic spirit of this beloved event. Please consider donating to the Sons of Norway Foundation, which has supported this event for the last several years, and take part in the Together We Are The Future campaign.

To honor Second Harvest Heartland or the Minnesota Military Family Foundation, please contact those organizations directly for giving information.

We thank you for understanding our decision and we hope you all are staying safe and healthy during this trying time. Please find future updates regarding the 2021 NATB event on the Sons of Norway website or by following us on Facebook.
