District Six 2017 Seminars

Lodge members are encouraged to read the manual from the District Six 2017 Seminars. These Member Seminars were held in various locations in the District during the early part of 2017. They were designed to develop a better understanding of who we are in the District and to foster teamwork within the lodges. The printed material from these seminars has been made available so that people who missed the seminars can read it.

Camp Norge Closed

We regret to disclose that Camp Norge is currently closed. Heavy rains washed out the road leading to the camp. The most recent information we have is being maintained on the District Six website home page.

Update as of February 14: All activities at Camp Norge scheduled through the end of July, including Camp Trollfjell and Trollfjell Folkehøgskule, are cancelled. Placer County “hopes” to complete a permanent bridge over the washout by the end of June, and realistically we cannot count on having access to the camp before the end of July. A detailed explanation of this is on the home page of the District Six web site.

District Six Facebook Group

The President of Sons of Norway District Six has challenged each lodge in the District to spread the word about the District Six Facebook Group. It is a public group that is open to everybody. The District Six President would like to see at least 1000 new members of this group. You can join the group by going here and clicking on the green box that says “+ Join Group” near the top of the page under the wide picture. You will see that green box only if you have not already joined the group. By joining, you will gain access to much information about Norwegian culture.
