Music City Vikings members and guests were treated to a wonderful tour of the refurbished historic stained glass windows in the First Lutheran Church in downtown Nashville at its meeting Sunday, Sept. 23. This church is home to the Music City Vikings Sons of Norway Lodge 5-681 meetings.
President Oscar Krosnes was the tour leader and he had gathered very interesting information about the beautiful stained glass windows and paintings in the church’s Nave, Sudekum Chapel and Children’s Chapel, as well as other history, stories and about the restoration itself.
Members are thankful to Sara Richter, who served as the lodge representative to the Sons of Norway District 5 convention, held this summer in La Crosse, WI. Sara shared her activities and thoughts about her participation, and presented a nice photo slide show of the convention and the nearby area. (watch for more information on this in the future).
In addition to regular members, were potential new members Emilie and Tom Collins. They were members of the SON Vikings of the Smokies in Knoxville but now live in Hermitage.
A light pot luck buffet including Scandinavian treats was served and the soggy weather held off for a nice meeting.
