On march 5th, Nordik Folk members Ronald Allen, Elizabeth Flores-Allen, Timothy Ogrentz, Linnea Ogrentz, Harry Ogrenz, Jean Ogrentz, and Jean Oak attended Bessemer Lodge No.203's Pancake Breakfast and Easter Culture Program in Chicago. After eating their fill, many came home with crafted Easter Witches, feather twigs & Easter eggs as well as Semlor.  It was a wonderful event.
