About the Event
Come celebrate Norwegian Constitution Day (Syttende Mai) and our Lodge Anniversary with us and also enjoy a special presentation about current-day Polar explorers who have been inspired by our Viking ancestors, pioneers of Polar Exploration! Our program speaker is Sharon Karafelis, a member of the Ester Moe Lodge of the Whidbey Daughters of Norway. Sharon’s presentation will focus mainly on the expeditions of Norwegian Borge Ousland, who between 1990 and 2019, journeyed across polar landscapes to break records and to match and exceed the feats of Fridtjof Nansen!
