Spring fest 2013

Spring Fest 2013

     Springfest was held on Sunday, April 28 at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Munster.  Our little (and big) Nordikid Trolls put on a wonderful show of traditional Swedish songs and dances.  After social hour and the Nordikid Performance we feasted on Swedish Meatballs, potatoes, lingonberries,  salad, bread, corn, green beans & ice cream sundays for desert.  
     What a wonderful turnout!  All hands were on deck to help cook, sell raffle tickets, set up our bakesale, and help sell items.
Part of the cooking crew:  Bryan Tomky, Janice Tomky & Tim Ogrentz

     Several of our older Nordikids were presented with special pins commemorating their involvement with the Children's Club  as college students.  We are very proud to have them as Lodge Members as well.  They continue to be involved members of both Nordikids and Nordik Folk!!!  We are lucky to have such a dedicated bunch.  District Lodge Lake Michigan No. 8 Chairman, Ed Hultgren and his wife, Assistant District Secretary and new Nordik Folk member Joella Hultgren were on hand to present them with their pins!
