Nordic American Thanksgivin Breakfast

Tomorrow is going to be a full day for sure.

It's time for the 24th Annual Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast (NATB). Always a great time, even if it does mean getting up early, and this year's event certainly won't disappoint. As always, the purpose of the NATB is for folks of the Scandinavian-American community to come together in the celebration of faith, freedom, family & friendship. It's also an opportunity for attendees to support important causes, like the Marie Sandvik Center and the Minnesota Military Family Foundation. Even if you can't make it to this year's event, check out the information on the breakfast here, and take a look at this year's charities.

We've got some great speakers this year, like Minnehaha Academy President John Engstrom, Jeanette Trompeter and Donna Erickson. Each of whom brings their own take on the important issues of faith, freedom, family & friendship, respectively. Personally, I can't wait to hear their thoughts.

Though, what I like even better about the event is the camaraderie. I've been to this event for the past 9 years and every time I'm always amazed to see folks from difference Scandinavian backgrounds coming together with hugs and handshakes. It's all for one good, a common cause if you will. It's a very cool thing to see and be part of, so if you can't make it this year, make sure to try next year.

Come back tomorrow and learn why my thoughts are already turning to next summer.
