ACTIVITIES

 

Leikarring Folk Dance Group Eidsvold Lodge's Leikarring was originally formed in 1947 by members Margarete and Andy Gilstein.  Members wear the National Hardanger costume (bunad).
Traditionally, the group performs four classifications of Norwegian folkdance: Bygdedans (village dance), Gammeldans (old dance), Turdans (figure dance, and Sangdans (song dance).
They have performed at local Lodge events, for schools and seniors' centers, the opening for the 1994 Commonwealth Games, and as far away as Stavanger, Norway in 2000 for the Nordleck Scandinavian Dance Festival.
The group meets at Norway House  on Tuesdays at 7 P.M.

250-595-7052 for more information.

 


The Eidsvold Walking Club
meets on the first Saturday of each month at pre-determined locations around Greater Victoria for a scenic and leisurely walk of about 4-5 kms.  After the walk, the group gets together for lunch at a nearby restaurant or pub for an enjoyable meal together.
All Lodge members and guests are welcome!  Times and locations can be found below or in the latest issue of the 'Runer' on our Newsletters page.
 

 

 

 

Cultural Programs Throughout the year under the direction of Marg Sorensen, we offer a number of activities to share Norwegian and Scandinavian culture.  These include such things as conversational Norwegian, rosemaling, and knitting, just to name a few.

**Update: Join a cultural group this fall; conversational Norwegian, Rosemaling and knitting. New members are welcome.  
Learn to make Smørbrød!  This class will be during the first week of November.  Sign up early as this class will be limited to 10 participants.  The date will be set based on interest.
