We recently created colorful recognition patches for 5, 10 and 15-year Heritage members. These charming designs featuring Norwegian wildlife can be ordered for $2 each. We have also updated our Heritage member certificates (available at no cost for 5, 10 and 15-year members). Please contact Sherry Gorse at [email protected] for more information.
FREE Heritage Membership offers current members an easy way to share their love of Norwegian tradition and culture with young family members. New Heritage members
receive a personalized welcome kit, including a member decal, ID card (valid until their 16th birthday) and welcome letter with information about Sons of Norway youth activities and programs. Each lodge can engage these youth as they prefer—for example, by sending annual birthday greetings from the lodge or hosting all-ages events like parades, family game nights, or kid-friendly sports events to help them earn Sports Medals.
New Heritage Membership Request forms are available online or by ordering from [email protected]. We welcome children age 15 and under, sponsored by a member in good standing, to the Heritage member program. Heritage members must be related to the sponsoring Sons of Norway member—most often a parent or grandparent— but they are not required to be part of the same household. At age 16, Heritage members have the option of joining Sons of Norway as an adult Individual member or as part of a Family membership, if one exists at their home address.
