Viking Lake Park.

Chief’s Message

Greetings, (JULY - AUGUST)

This is the busy season for our club and we are so glad to have everyone here! Please be thoughtful of your fellow members by picking up after yourself. There was a spring clean up in April and your fellow members worked very hard to clean the lake park and the dining room for your enjoyment. Many hands make light work so if everyone picks up after themselves we can all enjoy the beauty of the club.

Have your membership card ready to show the gate person when you arrive at the lake. All guests have to be signed in by a member and have to leave when the member leaves. We have new people working the gate and fellow members volunteering their time so please be as kind and cooperative as possible.

Greetings, (MAY - JUNE)

This year marks the 90th anniversary of the beginning of Ingjald Lodge #65. You can read about our fine club and its history on the iov65.com website along with the history of the Vikings Grand Lodge. May we continue to have the best interest of this organization in view as we celebrate this milestone

There are many exciting things happening at the club. We have bands every Friday night for your enjoyment starting May 22nd. There is a listing of the bands playing at the Vikings in the newsletter and on the calendar pages of this web site. The Saturday “Bloody Mary” breakfasts are back. Mother’s Day Brunch, the Annual Sportsmens’ Raffle, Boat Club Steak Fry, Trailer Association Pancake Breakfast and Memorial Day Chicken BBQ are a few of the events that are being planned.

The Spring Fling was a big hit. Thanks to everyone that came out and had fun at the club!.

The children’s playground and picnic grove should be thawed out by the time you receive this newsletter. Come and enjoy the Lake Park!

Until Next Time,

Chief Orrissa Greenwald

AED COURSE

We are looking for volunteers to take the AED Course. We have an AED at the club and need volunteers who would be willing to learn to use and maintain it. The AED is an automated external defibrillator and will save lives.

If you are interested in taking the course contact Jim Smith at site #67 or call the office at 487-9305.
