Velkommen til Stevne
The 2019 annual meeting of the Nordfjordlag was held on Sunday, September 15th at the Green Lake Bible Camp in Spicer, MN. Enclosed is a review of the day's activities.
You will note that the charge for the Stevne has been increased to $40.00. The Bible Camp has been very good to us in past years by keeping the cost of meals quite reasonable. In recent years we have also subsidized the day's activities from the General Fund. However, this year, the meal prices have been increased so it is obviously necessary to increase the Stevne charge. I'm sure you'll agree it is still a bargain for everything we receive.
We are keeping our fingers crossed that the new Nordfjord bunad will be ready for this year's Stevne. Many members kindly made a donation for the new bunad several years ago. At that time we weren't sure what the cost would be, but now we know it will be more than the previous donations, so there is a line on the registration form for a second donation for the bunad. "Takk skal du ha" for your support.
Many of you are aware that we lost our good friend and lag member Bob O'Neil from an accidental fall this past spring. Bob had been a valuable member of the board for many years as well as serving as our genealogist. We will miss him very much. This means that we need a new board member for the coming year. Please consider volunteering yourself or if you choose not to volunteer, please be prepared to suggest someone else.
I look forward to seeing you at the Stevne. Perhaps you can invite a relative or acquaintance to be your guest. It might inspire them to join the Nordfjord lag.
