December Meeting

December Meeting

Elizabeth “Elsebet” Curtiss and Gina Moorhead

Elizabeth "Elsebet" Curtiss has spent most of her life learning about, teaching, and living the Norwegian language and culture.  At 11, she started attending Skogfjorden, Concordia´s Norwegian Language Village, and has now been on staff for 20 years. In addition to summers at Skogfjorden, Elizabeth has also taught Norwegian online and in person, in the states and in Norway. A year ago, Elizabeth was approached by Ingvill Kaasin, the original owner of Hovden Formal Farm Wear.  She was looking to move back to Norway and asked if Elizabeth and her sister, Gina, would be interested in taking over.  This opportunity felt like the right thing at the right time and has been a fantastic way for Elizabeth to continue to explore, share, and build upon her Scandinavian heritage.

A reminder that during our December meeting we focus on raising funds for our Lakselaget Scholarships. We’ll be having our Julemarked and Bake Sale.   

In addition to baked goods brought by our members, we encourage members to bring gently-used Scandinavian items (formerly solicited and offered at the April Silent Auction) to our December meeting.  If you are a talented potter, painter, knitter, seamstress, weaver etc., and want to offer for sale your craft to fund the Lakselaget Scholarship Fund, this generosity is truly appreciated.
Instructions for members bringing items to sell for our Scholarship Fund:
1. Price everything you bring.
2. Bring items for the sale no later than 11:15 am.
3. Baked goods must be well-packaged and, unfortunately, can not be shared during the meeting.
4. You will be responsible for taking home your Items that are not sold. Anything left will not be saved for future scholarship fundraisers.
Finally, we look forward to seeing all the beautiful bunader!

We are a vibrant group of professional women
who are interested in contemporary Norwegian
issues and all things Norwegian. 


The Lakselaget Scholarship and Opportunity
Fund was established to celebrate, encourage
and advance the organization's motto,
women who swim against the current. 


Lakselaget holds monthly luncheons where
members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
