To enjoy, preserve, and promote our Norwegian heritage …
Our Chapter now has about 100 members, many who live outside Bosque County. Quite a few members grew up in the area and have fond memories of celebrating special holidays with their parents and grandparents. We are lucky in Bosque County to participate in many feasts (such as Lutefisk!) and other celebrations.
If you are interested in becoming a member of this organization, it is not required that you be of Norwegian descent, only that you will enjoy, preserve, and promote our Norwegian heritage. Become a member today! Print the Membership Form, and mail it in with your annual dues. Thanks!
