Poulsbo Son's of Norway 2-44 - President's Message
Hej all,
We had a great Viking Fest last month with all the goings-on here in Poulsbo. Lots of planning and preparation went into making it a fun and productive time for lodge life. From the opening ceremonies, to the parades, to dance performances, walk abouts, beer garden, and lefse sales. Lots of work, smiles, great weather, and a job well done.  Thanks to you all!
Now we move into summer months, some activities are slowing down until fall but there are still things to do as members. Plans are coming in July to have special dinner service in the Trolls’ Den on Tuesdays while the summer concerts happen at the pavilion. Please come down and have dinner on the deck listening to some fine music across the parkway. There’s still Friday dinners as we have folks to prepare meals.  And social activities throughout the weeks as you follow on Facebook and website. 
So in all its been a good year, with much more to come. Midtsommer on June 17th where we raise the Maistang pole and light the bonfire to celebrate the summer solstice. It’s been good to be your president! 
See you down at the lodge!

Vote for new roof!
At the lodge meeting June 13 we will take up the vote for the terms of a trade with Integrity Roofing for a new metal roof. A vote of 2/3 majority will be required to proceed with the trade. The Lodge board of directors and Building Association directors have deliberated these terms over the past months. Terms are as follows:
  • Integrity Roofing will provide labor and materials to remove and dispose of old lodge roof and install metal roof.
  • The Building Association will pay for 10 years of lodge membership for Integrity Roofing President Tanner, make Integrity Roofing platinum sponsor at Building Association auction fundraisers for 10 years and place a commemorative 16x8 tile on the deck wall below the Trolls’ Den.
  • The Lodge will host a ribbon cutting ceremony and Friday Night Dinner for Integrity crew at completion of project. The lodge will place promotional materials of coasters and Beer Garden tent in Trolls’ Den and hang Integrity banner at Nordic Markets for 10 years. The lodge will place quarterly advertising in the Maaken, social media, and website for next 20 years. Trolls’ Den will provide access to advertising on TVs and bathrooms for next 20 years.
Because this is a trade there is minimal direct cost to the lodge or building association for the roof other than incidental costs such as permitting and such. As part of the business meeting agenda on June 13, lodge and building association members will be asked to approve this trade by motion.
Kaffe Stua Cancelled
We are very sorry to cancel the Kaffe Stua scheduled for June 14 as we know many people were looking forward to it.   We hope to get Kaffe Stua up and running at another time.
