What we're about

This is a group for any Norwegians, Norwegian-Americans and all other enthusiasts who would like to meet new people who are interested in sharing Norwegian and other Scandinavian heritage!

We aim to enjoy preserving the colorful history and rich culture of the customs and traditions of the “Land of the Midnight Sun". Check out our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/houseofnorway/
