“Daughters of Norway’s Eva Nansen Lodge 46 is proud to continue the legacy of Nordic heritage throughout Iowa with cultural arts, history, and traditions that our ancestors brought to America to share among today’s children and women of all ages,” explained representative, Sandy Hansen. “The Lodge Sisters pride themselves in offering educational and festive events, cultural programs and activities, and social gatherings. Lifelong Nordic friendships have developed while sharing common interests.”
‘Scandinavian Heritage Lights Up Our Hearts’ will be the idea behind this years tree. The Scandinavian American theme will include candles, nordic stars, wooden rosemaling tree-reindeer-church ornaments, wooden ornaments with traditional heart basket design, pine cone accents, straw ornaments, mini packages, Santa stockings, lights, white snowflake ribbon laced around the tree and red tree skirt. Many of the ornaments were created by lodge members: Nadine Dobbe, Helga Kennedy, and Becky PaPerson.
