As the summer season begins its transition to fall, many find themselves preparing for the start of a new school year. People of all ages can feel the excitement that comes with a new year of possibilities and learning. As members of Sons of Norway, we love the opportunity to share knowledge and traditions that make our Norwegian heritage thrive. Below are links to online learning resources for Scandinavian and Norwegian traditions and culture. As the new school year begins, we hope you will find some of these resources helpful in your own pursuit of knowledge. And you are always welcome to join Enighed Lodge at our meetings and events.
