Bring your family and friends to help us celebrate Syttende Mai, a family event with many wearing Norwegian Bunads, a parade throughout the park, a smorgasbord of traditional festive foods, games for all and a time to celebrate our Norwegian heritage. The children are a vital part of the celebration; we appreciate and encourage their participation.
Please mark your calendar and join the Fjelldalen Lodge for a good family time. Call Marilyn Speas 303-973-2158 for further information.
Please join us at our May Heritage meeting when Bill Nesse from Stein Fjell Lodge will talk about life and love in 19th Century Sweden.
The lives of these Swedish ancestors were documented in the Swedish church records, which showed births, deaths, marriages, as well as where people lived and their migration and emigration. These records also reveal some surprising and interesting things about life in Sweden.
