Viking Lake Park.
Greetings and Salutations
Time flies when you’re having fun; and I really have had fun. This has been a learning experience, one someone should try at least once. Something you should think about in the future. What a great way to support “your” club.
Anyhow, I would like to thank all of you who have helped and guided me in this endeavor! We have a wonderful group of members who work very hard to keep our Scandinavian Heritage alive. Jump in when you can to help our new officers.
Speaking of jumping in; Don’t forget the Matt Brink Memorial Crazy Swede Polar Bear Plunge in February. Invigorating!
Tusen Tack Till Alla,
Past Chief Steve
P.S. I’m going to let you translate.
Hope everyone had a good Christmas and New Years.
For anyone who doesn’t know me, I’ve been a Viking for over 40 years. I have many happy memories with my family here at the Lake. And as many of you already know, I also bartend here.
I’m looking forward to this new year, new friends, and ideas.
Thanks to Steve & Vicki Kosthorst for all they did, and what a great job they’ve done.
We’ll be having our Super Bowl Party and Polar Bear Swim coming up. Bring your family and friends and
even someone who might be interested in joining our great club on the lake.
Talk to you all soon!
Chief Mindy Worden
