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.

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.

The Eidsvold Walking Club has resumed outdoor activities.    Ten walkers came out on Saturday, July 4th for a walk in Oak Bay. This was our first walk since COVID shut us down in March. We all enjoyed the weather, the views and the friendship. Following the walk we had a nice picnic in Windsor Park.  They will again meet on the first Saturday of the month.  Next walk will be August 1st.

 

The Annual Corn Roast normally held in August has been cancelled.

 

Eidsvold Bursaries - Due to the financial pressure that the pandemic has placed on our lodge, we are regretfully suspending this program for 2020.

 

We now have an account with the Bottle Depot here in Victoria.  Anyone can make a donation to help out at the lodge simply by returning your recyclable cans and bottles there, and requesting that they be credited to the Sons of Norway Victoria account. Below are the details;

Charitable Account for Sons of Norway Victoria includes the 4261 Glanford Ave, 655 Queens Ave, 3961 Quadra St Bottle Depots.

August 8,2020  We have just set up an account with the Sidney Return It Depot on Galaran Road for those of you in the North and Central Saanich areas who wish to donate your empties to the lodge.  The account name is "Sons of Norway".

How to donate on these accounts:

Please advise the cashiers at the beginning of the transaction that you would like to donate the bottles onto our account.

Please note: Only reference this account by account name and not by any account numbers that may be found on some of the account transaction receipts. Each depot will have a different account number for your account.

Thank you for your donation.
