Stein Fjell Lodge meets on the second Saturday of each month -- except July and August -- at Zion Lutheran Church, 815 E 16th Street, Loveland. Our meetings include cultural programs and socializing while enjoying light refreshments. Posten is our newsletter and is published each month that we meet. You can visit us virtually on Facebook. We look forward to meeting you and spending an afternoon together!
March 9: Lodge Meeting, 12-2, Zion Church. The program will be "Finding Your Roots." Glenna Brissey will uncover the story of Niels Hermundsen Kvåle, who immigrated from Norway to Amerika in 1881. Niels' story begins with an old photograph which helps to reveal his history, and is a testament to the power of curiosity and the importance of preserving our past. Come and join us for an interesting afternoon! (Photo: A barque -- three-masted sailing ship, Wikipedia)
