Upcoming meetings

The June membership meeting will be held at the lodge Monday June 10th at 7pm. Our program will be the movie "Utlaginn," the saga of Gisli. Icelandic in origin, but still Viking in lifestyle: this film is intriguing for the setting, the housing, and the lifestyle in areas of low population and replete with Nordic customs and mindset. Please be aware that there are about three seconds of nudity. Otherwise we learn about what life could be like in the long, long ago. You will remember this film!
