GATHER: to bring together                                    GIVE: make available/provide

The GLSF Board of Directors offers you a challenge that will both provide some fun/entertainment for you, your family, your friends as well as provide funding for its scholarship program.

Here is how it goes:

GATHER your household and/or neighbors and/or friends and/or family (whomever you are comfortable with during this era of COVID. Gathering often includes beverage, food and fun.

Here are just a few GATHERING ideas involving food.

  • Host a breakfast; Norwegian pancakes or Danish æbleskiver come to mind
  • Host a lunch; Scandinavian smørrebrød; soup and crusty bread;  or whatever lunch food works
  • Host a dinner; lutefisk and the trimmings; meatballs and the trimmings; pork loin and Danish red cabbage or whatever food works
  • Host a special gathering; a klub feast; gather to make: krumkakke; rosettes; favorite Scandinavian cookies lefse [many hands make light work]
  • A dance party? A sports watch party? Streaming movie night?
  • You see the sky is the limit

GIVE (donate) to GLSF. Establish a “participation” fee for each person joining. It could be some arbitrary amount; it could be the average they might have spent on Bucket Raffle Tickets in the past.  It is a donation, so it comes by mutual agreement or from the heart.

Have fun!
