The date has been announced – June 16-18, 2022.
That’s the date our Kringen Lodge welcomes the Sons of Norway, District IV Convention to Fargo. Delegates from Alberta, Saskatchewan, Montana and North Dakota will gather to renew friendships, hear reports, take action on business, and celebrate our heritage.
Before the convention delegates arrive, our host lodge has a long list of things to get ready. The Norwegian word FORBEREDELSE means to “get ready in advance.” Zone Director, Kay Halverson, and I have been asked to serve as Co-Chairs. We have lined up a large team of committee members and volunteers to prepare for our guests. Responsibilities include inviting delegates, proposing costs and a registration process, planning menus and activities, lining up craft displays and vendors, creating training opportunities and workshops.
As we work together to prepare, we invite your input in the “forberedelse” process. We welcome your involvement and suggestions. Preparing together creates new friendships and lasting memories. Together we can move forward under the convention theme “Call to Action,” a tribute to the heroic summons of Prillar-Guri to call the Norwegian farmers into action in 1612.
