February Cultural Meeting
February 6 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
February has Valentine’s Day, when we celebrate love. Let’s show our love, fraternalism, creativity, and
generosity at the February cultural meeting on Sunday, February 6th, by having a fund-raiser to benefit the
Sons of Norway Foundation, which provides much needed help to members nationwide in times of disaster.
Since we still have to be flexible because of the ongoing pandemic, we’ve planned an event which can be
done in person, via Zoom, or as a hybrid event.
Let’s create themed baskets to be auctioned off at the February meeting. Love to bake? Make a basket with cooking
items or baked goods. Love the movies? Make a movie night basket. Love to celebrate? Make a wine and cheese basket.
Love to read? Make a book lover’s basket. Love to garden? Make a basket with seed packets and gardening tools. How
about a game night basket, a Lego basket, a graphic novel basket, or a Valentine’s Day hearts and flowers and chocolate
basket? This is an opportunity to have some fun, admire one another’s creativity, and demonstrate our generosity by
helping fellow Sons of Norway members in need. If our meeting is in person, bring your baskets to the Nordic Hall
to be auctioned off. If our meeting is by Zoom or is hybrid, prepare to show us your basket from the comfort of your
own home. We’ll arrange a time and place for people to meet to claim their baskets. Hint: you are allowed to put
together more than one basket, and you are not only allowed, but encouraged, to bid on more than one basket!
Protocol for entering the building: You must show proof of vaccination before entering the Nordic Hall. Masks must
be worn. If you are not vaccinated and want to attend the meeting virtually, send an e-mail to Peter Vatne at
firstname.lastname@example.org so he can send you the Zoom link.
