Velkommen, Detroit Norwegians.
Detroit area Norwegians and their friends gather at the Sons of Norway's Nordkap Lodge in Farmington Hills, MI. Nordkap Lodge is the Detroit chapter of the Sons of Norway fraternal organization. It serves as a meeting place and social network for Norwegian and Scandinavian enthusiasts from the entire metro-Detroit area.
Nordkap Lodge is a place to celebrate Norwegian culture. It is an all-ages family friendly nonprofit organization. Here you are not just a face in the crowd--you are a friend. A part of a community. Our members take care of each other. We are dedicated to community service and cultural education. You don't need to be Norwegian to join the Sons of Norway. You just need to have an interest in Nordic culture.

Celebrating Midsummer--St. Hans Eve, June 23rd
Bicentennial Celebration of the 1814 Constitution
Nordkap marked the 17th of May and the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution with a celebration at the Swedish Club. Festivities began with a parade and national anthems at the flagpole on the club's grounds (see image at top of page). It was an occasion for young and old to wear their colorful bunads (immediately above), the national dress of Norway. (Both photos by Bob Giles)

BREAKING NEWS UPDATE: Our January meeting will now feature not one but two illustrated talks by people who recently completed journeys to Norway. First, Nordkap memer Connie Hart will present an illustrated talk about her trip to Norway and Scandinavia last summer. Her trip with her family came during the 200th anniversary year of Norway’s constitution. Connie is the great-great-great granddaughter of Nicolai Wergeland, one of the signers of the 1814 constitution. In addition, Faith Ho will discuss and show photos from her recent travels to Bergen, which we now bet is her favorite Norwegian city. Faith was one of the students in our Norwegian language class.
