This year, Norman and Davenport are asked to provide 10 pound bags of potatoes for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We need to have at least 22 bags to Kindred Lutheran Church no later than November 21.
A very special thank you to everyone from Davenport and Norman who attended the Family Heritage Sunday on November 3. We had a great morning making lefse and krumkake and learning about Scandinavian heritage and viewing artifacts. The kids also learned a Norwegian folk song which they sang during the morning service. Thank you to everyone that participated in the service and the meal that followed. The meatballs, mashed potatoes, and fresh lefse and krumkake were all wonderful. Looking forward to seeing everyone in Davenport at a date yet to be determined for another joint parish worship service!
