Thank goodness that our February weather was more cooperative!  While weather in our area has been on the strange side, it didn't keep us homebound!  This month we managed to get through a Viking Lecture Series, a Genealogy Club meeting, a Nordikid's Fundraiser and a Nordik Folk Business Meeting/Installation Dinner.  

The Viking Lecture Series was held at the Munster Public Library on February 2nd..  This series is composed of 36 separate half-hour units.  On the first Tuesday of each month, 2 of them are shown and discussed. This event is open to the public.

The Genealogy Club was held on February 8th at the Ridge United Methodist Church in Munster. Herb Smith leads members in their searches and guides all to the information they seek.  He's a master!  This event is held the 2nd Monday of each month and is also open to the public.

A Pampered Chef Fundraiser was held for Nordikids at the home of Lynda Smith on Monday, January 25th.  There were over 10 people in attendance, and approximately $200 was raised for our Children's club.

Our February Business Meeting and Annual Installation was held on Monday, February 15.  Our new Lodge Deputy Susan Nilsson conducted the ceremony.  Susan is our new District Lodge Lake Michigan No. 8 Secretary, and is a member of Bessemer Lodge No. 203 which meets in Evergreen Park, Illinois on the 1st Saturday of each month.
