Viking Lake Park.
Hard to believe it’s that festive time again. Time to “clean it up” and put things away. I think we’ve all had a great summer, although a little wet. We can now get to the great foods and smells of the season. We should loosen our belts and enjoy.
There are a lot of events coming up, so please feel free to join in.
Also time to nominate officers. All are urged to get out and vote. Let’s all have a safe and joyous holiday.
Tills Nästa Gång (Until Next Time),
NOMINATIONS: November 7th and November 21st at the 8 PM Lodge Meeting we will be
accepting Nominations for Lodge Officers.
Come and run for an office, be a part of the decision makers, get involved! ! !
ELECTION OF OFFICERS will be held Thursday, December 5th from 4 to 8 PM at the downtown office.
Members who will be out of state on election day may cast an absentee ballot as follows:
1.) A member in good standing who will be out of state on the date of the Election can submit a self-addressed stamped envelope and upon completion of the Nominations, the Ballot will be mailed to the Member. The Un-Signed Ballot must be placed in a sealed plain unmarked envelope. The sealed plain envelope must be placed in a mailing envelope along with a copy of the Member’s paid up Membership Card and received by the Wednesday immediately preceding the on-site Election Date.

Vikings Donate to the Friends of Midway State Park
A donation of $1,000 was made to the friends of Midway State Park to assist in the restoration of the Herschell Carousel. The thirty vintage horses have been adopted by individuals and groups for $1,000 each. Our brown adopted horse will be decorated in blue and yellow and will have a plaque with our name on it. Pictured is Steve Eckstrom standing next to the horse the Viking Lodge, The Trailer Association, The Boat Club, and The Past Chiefs Club have adopted.
TACK SÅ MYCKET - THANK YOU
