Velkommen to Fjellheim Lodge, Sons of Norway
Welcome to the Sons of Norway in Colorado Springs! Our meetings are the 2nd Wednesday of each month except for July. Everyone is welcome to visit. You do not need to be a member to attend our meetings.
Meetings begin at 7:00 PM. Often a special guest / program along with tasteful Norwegian snacks follow the meetings. Contact us if you have any questions.
Frokost, Sunday, April 19 at 11:00am
Fjellheim Lodge will again be hosting our annual Norwegian breakfast and serving it to our members and friends. This event is another way of sharing our Norwegian culture through our food.
There are many of our members and friends who volunteer many hours to this event. This involves cooking eggs, to displaying the meats and cheeses, cutting lefse, making the salmon mousse, the waffles, and other baked goods, just some of the menu items that are lovingly prepared by our volunteers.
It will be held this year on Sunday, April 19, 2015, 11 a.m. to 1:30 pm., at the Lodge. For those of you who are willing to help, there will be a "sign-up" sheet at our upcoming business meeting, or you may call me at 540-2737 to offer your services.
Thanks - Sissel

Evan Anderson, a Junior at Thomas Jefferson High School in Denver,Colorado, will present a program for lodge members and guests at our meeting on March 11 at 7 PM.

Evan is giving many presentations to help raise funds to attend the People to People program, instituted by former President Dwight Eisenhower to promote cultural exchanges for young people. Evan hopes to travel this summer in Italy, France and Spain. His hope is to experience different cultures and help promote peace with people in those places.
