World Cultural Festival-Valparaiso


     Nordik Folk and Nordikids spent this glorious September 19th Saturday participating in the Valparaiso International Center's "World Culture Festival."

     As the only group representing the Scandinavian countries, our Nordic contingent got quite a bit of attention.  Phyllis Kalajian sold her Scandinavian jewelry, Nordik Folk members passed out lodge information and sold various craft items, Lynda Smith shared pepparkakor, Herb Smith wowed in his Viking garb and battle axe, and as usual...the Nordikids entertained marvelously.

     Nordik Folk members at hand:  Lynda and Herb Smith, Phyllis Kalajian, Shelly Pehlgrim, Janice Tomky, Tonia Tomky, Lynda and Herb Smith, Joanne Ortman, Ingrid Lesko, Lisa Pearson, Lynnea Sinwelski, and Annalisa Blue.
