2013——-Wow!  A  HAPPY NEW YEAR

President Third District Gail Ekloff

Can you believe how time keeps flying by!
Recently on a visit to NYC we saw the Radio City Christmas spectacular. Though some of the old traditional dances were still performed there are NEW acts that require 3D glasses. There is also a skit about a computer game.  It occurred to me they understood you must evolve as the years go by and have what is wanted by the young people and future generations.

For myself, I have just learned the NEW way to use my computer… it’s constant contact.. what a great tool to get the message out to members or friends!

The Charitable Trust will have a NEW look and  NEW campaigns having had hurricane Sandy bring-to-light how much help our brothers and sisters need.  Aren’t we fortunate to have such a resource as the Charitable Trust?

NEW officers bring their own unique style to Sons of Norway meetings and events, they keep abreast of the wants and needs of their lodge members.

Land of the Vikings NEW managers Bring a NEW look to our  “home away from home” with innovative ideas to help get LOV on the map.

Listed here are some of our LOV manager Pete’s ideas:
“December 31st brings us to our New Year’s Eve Dinner Dance here at Land of the Vikings.  Were serving prime rib or scallops with all the fixin’s. Also, enjoy the music and a champagne toast at midnight!  Bring your family and friends and plan to stay the night!”

“Attention Lodges! We are working on our 2013 LOV activities calendar.  Please give us a call and confirm your weekends here at LOV. We’re planning a clambake, the annual Lobster-fest, and a pig roast and we don’t want to take any weekends you are definitely planning to use.  We are also talking to some of the local sporting groups/associations about sponsoring their annual benefits and we need to provide them with open dates. Please claim your weekends!

On another note… I’ve been hearing there is a desire from the membership to encourage a renewed sense of Fraternal  As defined in the dictionary;
fra·ter·nal  (adj.).   Of or relating to brothers: a close fraternal tie. Showing comradeship; brotherly.

Let’s put a NEW focus on Franternalism in the New Year!
