Thursday, October 8, 2015

The Edmonds Sons of Norway is presenting a program by Ed Egerdahl, Edmonds Lodge member and Director of the Scandinavian Language Institute on October 14, 2015 at 7:00pm at the Edmonds Masonic Center, 515 Dayton Street. The program is free and open to the public.

The program includes viewing and discussion of various newsreel programs produced in 1945 on the occasion of Norway's Liberation following World War II.

The first video marks Crown Prince Olav's return to Norway to celebrate the first legal Syttende Mai celebration in Oslo in 6 years. The second documents the return of King Haakon VII on June 7, 1945 from his exile in London. This year marks the 32nd Anniversary of the Edmonds Lodge.

The Sons of Norway is the largest Norwegian organization outside of Norway with a mission of preserving and promoting Norwegian heritage and tradition through cultural and social activities offered at local and district lodges.
