New Sons of Norway Logo Site born on date: 12Sep00
last update: 24 April 2019

As time marches on, we have decided that our website needs to be refreshed. While the new site is under construction, though, you will still be able to access this old site to find the Brevet, the member directory, and the other information you have accessed in the past. We will give you plenty of notice before you must begin to use the new site and before this old site goes away for good. The new website is currently accessible, though it does not yet contain all of the information that this old site does. It is a work-in-progress, and all content will eventually be there, in what we hope you find to be a fresher, brighter, and easier to use updated format. Enjoy looking around and watching the progress. The new SynnÝve-Nordkap website can be found at:

We have an online photo album, thanks to Lynn Hoffmeyer. To see it, click here.

The museum exhibit developed by our lodge, "New Land, New Life: Norwegian Immigration to Minnesota, 1825-1925" has received rave reviews wherever it has traveled. To see the panels and read about this remarkable display, click here.

We're the only Sons of Norway lodge in St. Paul, with around 250 members, and new members joining nearly every month. We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month, usually at 7:00 PM, in Luther Hall at Gustavus Adolphus Lutheran Church, 1669 Arcade Street, St. Paul 55106 (link to map in General Info and in green Meetings/ Activities box). Guests are always welcome at our meetings and activities.

Send us an Email via the link at the left if you have questions or are interested in joining our lodge, or if you find a "dead" link from our pages. If you want to be sure to join our lodge, it is best to join through us. If you join online, make sure to enter Syknnove-Nordkap Lodge #1-008 as your preferred lodge.

Lodge activities include learning more about Norway and its culture, language, crafts, music, food, etc. (Jah, we like to eat!) Although there is usually a brief business meeting, most of our time is devoted to presentations or entertainment relating to Scandinavian culture. Some recent programs have featured Norwegian Christmas traditions, storytelling, and Norwegian music.

We sponsor the Norway food booth at the Festival of Nations each year, and host numerous local events. Click Newsletters link at left for recent issues of our newsletter to see what our lodge is doing currently. (This link is generally more up to date than Recent Activities.)
