Daughters of Norway - Freya Lodge #50

On November 14, 2009, our new Daughters of Norway, Freya Lodge #50, was warmly welcomed by the Grand Lodge and sister member Lodges, at an Institution Ceremony held in Spokane, Washington.

The purpose of Daughters of Norway is to unite into a sisterhood women who wish to preserve Scandinavian heritage, history, culture and language - and to build a strong support system and bond of friendship within the sisterhood.

We gather monthly to share Nordic folk tales, Scandinavian cooking, folk arts, language lessons and more. If you have Scandinavian family ties, or have an interest in Nordic culture, you can become a member - we look forward to seeing you!
