May Cultural Meeting – Zoom

May 7 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

The January 2021 edition of Viking featured member David Ellingson’s kayak adventures through the fjords of Norway. The self-described “water spirit” tackled epic mileage while receiving help from “fjord angels,” communing with the spirits of his ancestors, and learning some life lessons along the way.

In Ellingson’s video Coming Home, he recalls times on his family’s Iowa farmstead, highlighting his increasingly daring paddle trips. Eventually he considered his great-grandparents’ courageous emigration and decided he had to take his own leap of faith and experience the Old Country—by kayak. Follow Ellingson and his fellow paddlers, nicknamed the Spirit of Norway, as they recount the highs and lows of their time on the Nærøyfjord, Sognefjord and Hardangerfjord.

Join us to watch this interesting 25 minute video of Ellington’s adventure.  A zoom link will be provided on our Lodge website 30 minutes prior to the meeting  Just go to www.norumbegasofn.org and a pop-up message will appear on the home page shortly after logging in.
