Happy Thanksgiving from Sons of Norway CEO Eivind Heiberg

With Thanksgiving coming up tomorrow, I find myself reflecting on the many things in my life for which I am thankful. In addition to the blessings of family, friends and good health, I am thankful for all the Sons of Norway members throughout North America and Norway.

Specifically I am thankful for their dedication to their lodges and communities as well as their passion for preserving Norwegian heritage and culture. Every day I hear about a lodge or group of members who are living the fraternal spirit by giving back to their community through events and volunteerism. It gives me a great sense of pride every time I hear one of these stories.

So, this Thanksgiving, I want you to know that I am thankful for all you and your fellow members are doing throughout the organization. I hope tomorrow is a day of peace, joy, appreciation and thankfulness. Also, if you find yourself in a moment of reflection on the things you are thankful for this year I hope you’ll share them with me by contacting me at
