The Sonja Henie Lodge #29 Reno, Nevada was founded October 9, 1971.
In choosing a lodge name to honor a famous Nordic woman, we chose to honor the world famous 20th century Norwegian skating and cinema star, Sonja Henie. Champion figure skater and movie star, Sonja Henie was one of the most popular celebrities of the thirties.
"Zoom" meetings are held every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. (pst)
If interested in attending our Zoom meeting, please contact our President, Perralina Palm. Info on our Contact page.
Our regular in-person meetings incorporate the practice of the Norwegian language; hands-on activities such as rosemaling and hardanger embroidery; and Norwegian history, culture and common songs such as Hurra for Deg (the Norwegian Happy Birthday song). Fun-loving women of all ages are welcome to join like-minded women of Scandinavian descent!
