SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 17, 2017
GREEN LAKE BIBLE CAMP, SPICER, MINNESOTA
Please make plans now to be at the 2017 Stevne as we continue the next 100 years of Nordfjordlag In America! We will meet at Green Lake Bible Camp on Sunday, September 17 with a full day of activities starting at 9:00am.
The following schedule and costs are subject to change.
9:00 - 10:30
Registration / Morning coffee hour
Worship service at the Stave Church
Bridal couple: Martha McCartney and Robert Swanson
Stephanie Henricksen will play her Hardanger fiddle for the bridal march from the church down to the dining hall.
The Nordfjordlag bunad has become quite fragile and in order to
preserve it, it will no longer be worn. Martha will be wearing her
mother's traditional bunad this year. The board has authorized a new
bunad, which is currently being made. Since this is a costly project, we
are asking members to consider making a special donation to help fund
this project by adding the word "bunad" under the Memorials category and
entering an amount to be included in the total.
Thank you in advance for your generosity.
Noon meal, catered
Presentation: Doug Ohman.
Doug is a well-known Minnesotan who is recognized as a photographer, storyteller and author of books centered on pioneer history. His presentations on topics such as churches, barns, school houses, cemeteries and State Parks have been widely acclaimed.
Introduction of descendents of founding members.
Entertainment: Nordfjord Songs and Music led by Dennis Sorheim with piano accompaniment by Martha McCartney.
Catered Dinner served at 5:00
(All of the meals will be catered, including the coffee hours/snacks.)
Membership dues have been increased but are still at the amazing price of $7 per year.
The cost for all meals, coffee, and all of the day's events is still $25 for members and $35 for guests. This cost covers the entire day, with no reduced rates for events missed.
