Some past  activities:

2018

Syttende Mai – A cold, rainy day – so we kept ourselves and our flags dry and paraded indoors! Kids’ snacks and games followed, and a sold-out dinner for 70. It was a full evening, with speeches, choir, folk dancers, and bunad show. Thank you to everyone who helped make it happen. Link to photos here

 

Ellestad-Wiik Duo
January 7 at the Scan Centre, Valhalla room. A most enjoyable afternoon of music and song – here’s hoping they will come back again.
