Jul Celebration (December)
This event, open to the public, is our lodge's formal celebration commemorating Jul (Christmas -- read more about Christmas traditions). There is a dinner, followed by traditional songs and music and a St. Lucia procession (read more about the St. Lucia Holiday).
The Lodge sponsors a scholarship award to a local high school senior every year. We also actively sponsor and support summer youth camps that teach language and crafts skills. Money is raised for these activities through bazaars and bake sales. Contact Richard Nordness for more information.
