Leif Erikson, Sons of Norway, is a Nordic organization with a focus on the arts and cultures of the countries of Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden.  The group meets monthly with a program about the music, food, culture, dance, art, genealogy, literature, wood working, rosemalling, history or other interests about the Nordic countries.  Monthly programs are free and open to the public; some meetings may have dinners needing reservations and fees, but open to anyone interested in that event.  The October event as mentioned, will focus on sharing Nordic togetherness and interests at this unique double event in Wadena.  However during the rest of the year, most events will be held in Vining at the Vining Community Center.
