WHAT A PLEASURE IT IS TO ONCE AGAIN SEE OLD FRIENDS IN PERSON!

The Danish Viking Lodge 342 had its first in-person meeting for the year on Friday, Sept. 17, 2021 at 7 pm.  It was a covered dish dinner, with everyone contributing something delicious to the table.  The next meeting will be Friday, Oct. 15th, and, something new for us, will feature pizza and a special dessert.  If you would like to join us in person (or alternately, if you'd like to join via Zoom, please contact me (Sharon Kvist by email    kvistrmx@aol.com)

 

 

ONE OF THE NICE THINGS WE REMEMBER ABOUT OUR

STAY-AT-HOME PERIOD:

 

One of our members anonymously delivered to the homes of all the other members a thoughtful and personal gift.  Torben first left a beautiful bouquet of flowers from his own garden, then a jar of delicious peach preserves, and then a jar of preserved pumpkin slices.   He followed that with gingerbread dough for cookies, and Danish pickles.  So, each time he drove to each member's house (and we live far apart) and left these prizes to be discovered on their doorsteps as a happy surprise!  A random act of kindness for sure!  Thank you Torben!

 

***  NOW IT'S  EIGHT  TIMES !!   Thanks again, Torben, this time for the artful and delicious Danish open face sandwiches that you and Ulla are both famous for.  You've given us all happy moments as we found these treasures on our doorsteps!

 

 

WE'VE NOW HAD THREE ZOOM MEETINGS, and although they are never going to be a great substitute for seeing everyone in person, at least it keeps us in touch.  If you're looking at the website, and you would like to join our Zoom meeting, please email me at kvistrmx@aol.com and let me know.  I'll be sure you are notified for the next one, which will be  April  16th, 2021 at 7:30.

 

As promised, following on the page called LATEST  ADDITIONS  are more Fastelavn photos from the past (sometimes distant past) and I hope you enjoy them.

 

 

 

 

 

 

A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT OF THE CLUB:

I hope visiting our website gives you an interest in attending one of our meetings at the Danish Brotherhood. There you will experience the danish spirit and learn about the Danish culture. We usually have a danish meal and some Danish dessert. Due to the corona virus there have been no meetings the last few months but we will start up again the third Friday of each month as soon as times become a little more normal.  We hope to see you at our next Brotherhood meeting. Paa gensyn !

Bente Bladt, President

 

We also support Kids Alley, local food shelters and Christmas charities.

 

COME TO A MEETING AND SEE IF YOU LIKE IT !!
