The Vikings are coming! The Vikings are coming!
The Vikings of Bjornstad, a living history group that recreates the attire and weapons of the feared medieval rovers of European waters will be featured this month at a celebratory meeting of the Snorre Lodge of the Sons of Norway.
The lodge's May 16 meeting will focus on Syttende Mai, (May 17th), the nation's independence day and this year the 200th anniversary of the Norwegian Constitution.
Also featured will be a presentation on the "Last Viking," explorer Roald Amundsen, and sandwiches and other Norwegian fare. A $10 donation is suggested.
The celebration will run from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Hill and Valley Club, 1808 B Street, Hayward.
Reservations should be made with President Jeannie Thomson at 510-656-3549 or firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, May 12th.
