SIGDALSLAG ANNUAL MEETING AND LAG ACTIVITY
Join us in Decorah on Saturday, July 22, 2017 from 12:30 to 4:00 pm for our Sigdalslag activity and annual meeting.
We thank Birgitta, Carol and Marguerite Meade for planning a great afternoon for us. The lag will spend the afternoon at the historic rural Hauge Lutheran Church seven miles north of Decorah. We will have a map at our registration table and will arrange carpooling. We plan to arrive at 12:30 and leave by 4:00. The Hauge church is now an ELCA church but was originally of the historic Hauge persuasion, which is well documented in immigrant history. We will hear a speaker on the history of the church.
Lunch will be provided. The meal blessing will be delivered by clergy wearing the antique prestefrakk (preaching robe) worn by former Sigdal’s lag president Carol Meade’s grandfather when he was a pioneer pastor in the late 1800’s. This is a fun photo op.
There will be an opportunity to see the Meade family’s Norwegian Fjord Horse and to take pictures.
A short business meeting with door prizes will complete the afternoon. We will take a group picture before adjourning in time for you to return to Decorah to prepare for the banquet.
The $10 per person charge can be paid on your registration form. Online registration will be available soon.
