Past Chairman Mike Pearson Jr.
receives his Past Chairman Jewel

     It took us awhile to get it to him...but after long last, Chairman Tim Ogrentz pinned Mike with his pin at the September business meeting.  Micheal Pearson Jr. was elected Chairman of Nordik Folk No. 761 for 3 years from 2012-2014. Before that, he served at Assistant Master of Ceremonies from 2006-2008 and also performed with Nordikids Musiklubb for many years.  Mike was initiated into the Lodge on January 29, 2006 as a charter member. Currently, Mike Pearson Jr. is serving  District Lodge Lake Michigan No. 8 as a Board Member.
     Mike graduated in 2014 from Purdue University Calumet with a BA in Visual Communications & graphic design.  He minored in advertising. He recently started working for Worldwide Advertising Agency in Chicago as Junior Art Director.  He is very active in our lodge and district.  
    Congratulation to Mike on all of his accomplishments and a huge "tack så mycket" from all of us here at Nordik Folk No. 761.
