You're Invited: Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast

Will you be joining Sons of Norway and 800 of its closest friends next week at the Nordic American Thanksgiving Breakfast (NATB)? If you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, I highly recommend you do so ASAP because space is limited and filling up fast. If you’re not familiar with the NATB, it’s an event, founded by Sons of Norway in 1985, that is devoted to bringing together people of Nordic heritage and offering thanks for the privileges of freedom, faith, family and friends.  

This year we’ve got some amazing speakers! First, we have none other than Governor Mark Dayton sharing his thoughts and reflections on the topic of freedom. Next Luther College president, Richard Torgerson Ph. D. will discuss the importance of faith. Then we’ll close the morning with Marcia Zimmerman, Senior Rabbi at Temple Israel, speaking to the audience about the blessings of family & friends. Then, helping us throughout the morning will be, Mirja Hanson, Honorary Consul General of Japan at Minneapolis as our MC.

This is going to be a great morning of reflection and fellowship for the Nordic-American community here in the Twin Cities, so if you are within driving distance, I recommend you check it out.
