MCV In The News
Music City Vikings members gathered for coffee and conversation in December at the home of Cultural Director, Evelyn McDaniel. Everyone enjoyed a julbord with lefse, krumkake, and other treats. And, MCV President, Oscar Krosnes was the lucky one to find the hidden almond in the Christmas rice pudding! It was fun to be together and we look forward to Julefest in 2022!
Friends, family, and fellow Music City Vikings members joined together in August to honor MCV President, Oscar Krosnes on his 90th birthday! MCV Vice President, Art Lensgraf welcomed everyone and MCV Membership Secretary, Karen Kennedy shared her piano talents by accompanying the group for a singalong of Norwegian favorites. We also celebrated Sharon Lassiter and her twin sister, Sharol Hopwood on their 80th birthday (in May). And, our newest MCV member Michael Grindberg, brought his beautiful hand-made Viking ship to share with the group.
Music City Vikings members Sharon Lassiter and Sharol Hopwood were featured in the Sons of Norway Viking magazine in September 2020. Due to Covid-19, the lodge was not hosting live events so the twin sisters celebrated Syttende Mai at home with hot dogs and great attitudes.
Our new Lodge Vice President, Dr. Arthur Lensgraf was featured in the June 2020 issue of Viking Magazine. He is pictured with District 5 Zone Director Dee Bumpers, who is a member of Vikings of the Smokies in Knoxville, TN.
Julefest 2019 was featured in the Green Hills News and other local newspapers!
In recognition of its 125th anniversary, The Sons of Norway have released a video recapping its history. Music City Vikings were included! The April 17, 2019 Gospel Explosion Norway and Kine Fossheim Concert at Bethel World Outreach Church was highlighted and included MCV members with some of the Gospel Explosion choir members!
