What's next for the Sons of Norway blog?

The weekend is almost here, but before we all check out for a couple days of well deserved relaxation, I wanted to share some exciting pieces of news regarding the Sons of Norway blog.

First, beginning next week, the Sons of Norway blog will be welcoming two new contributors! Headquarters staff members Colin Thomsen and Nichole Neuman will enter the blogosphere with regular posts on a number of topics ranging from Norwegian culture and heritage to answers to common questions we get from the public and members.

In fact, I believe Colin is already working on something we get a lot of questions about. Our logo. Its changed little over the past century and we get a lot of questions about the meaning and symbolism behind it. So, next week make sure and check back to read all about it. From what I have seen already, the story of our logo is actually quite interesting. Personally, I'm really looking forward to reading it and I can't wait to share it with all of you.

The other exciting news is relates to the October issue of Viking magazine, which should be arriving in homes during the week of 9/22. In it, there will be a feature on members' experiences with and in the Norwegian Resistance Movement during WWII. It's sure to be a great article, because we had such a large response from members with stories about their experiences. In fact the response was so overwhelming there wasn't enough room for all of them in the magazine, so the blog will be running a series of member stories in tandem with the release of the October Viking magazine! Make sure to check them out. I've already read a few and they are great!

Well, that's it for now-I'm off to the first-ever Draxten Lodge golf outing. We'll have some new posts up on Monday so be sure to check back then. Until then, have a great weekend!
