When hearts overflow with gratitude the Norwegian language lays it on thick with not just one “thank you,” but with “a thousand thanks.” As we near the end of our Together at Kringen Campaign, we are ready to celebrate the generosity of our Sons of Norway members. Gifts to the campaign are closing in on our $1,000,000 goal to recover our Covid losses and rejuvenate our facilities. On Thursday evening, July 15th, we invite all who have contributed to join in a celebration banquet hosted by the Kringen Club.
Chris Carlson will brighten up the evening with his wit and humor as our Master of Ceremonies. In addition to recognizing the Campaign Committee and honoring the donors, we will be treated to music composed by Norway’s virtuoso violinist, Ole Bull. Tightening up the strings on her Covid-weary violin, Karin Andreasen-Gambell has been working to replicate Ole Bull’s Visit to the Mountain Cabin. After a delicious serving of fresh salmon followed by a taste of rømmegrøt, we will be ready for a virtual walk in the mountains.
The Kringen Club is still accepting donations to the campaign and would like to honor every donor with an invitation to the banquet. Please make sure we receive your name and your check by our deadline on July 8th. For all the support we have received through this campaign, we raise our voices to say “Tusen Takk!”
