Sons Of Norway Charlotte 3-679 New Lodge Organizational and FUN Meeting

Charlotte and the Carolinas area are organizing a SON Lodge for
fellowship, sharing, monthly gatherings, community support and
interaction, diversity activities, fun heritage events and learning.
We want you and your families to join us! Be on our mailing list,
attend gatherings, participate in parades and activities, orienteering,
travel, experience and share with us! Our next meeting will establish
our formal new lodge name, our meeting schedule and location, our next
6 months of adventures and activities, a Norwegian May 17th –
Constitution Day Celebration in Charlotte and much more.

The mission of Sons of Norway is to promote and preserve the heritage
and culture of Norway and provide quality insurance and financial
products to its members.

Sons of Norway was organized as a fraternal benefit society by 18
Norwegian immigrants in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on January 16, 1895.
The purposes and goals of the Founding Fathers were to protect members
of Sons of Norway and their families from the financial hardships
experienced during times of sickness or death in the family. Over time,
the mission of Sons of Norway was expanded to include the preservation
of Norwegian heritage and culture in our Society. We have grown since
our beginning and are now the largest Norwegian organization outside

We promote Norwegian traditions and fraternal fellowship through the
cultural and social opportunities offered in local lodge and district
lodge activities. These activities include language camps and classes,
scholarships, handicrafts, cooking and heritage classes, heritage
programs, sports programs, travel opportunities, Viking Magazine, and
outreach programs sponsored by the Sons of Norway Foundation.

Join us!
