Concordia Language Villages: Norwegian village celebrates 50 years


BEMIDJI - To celebrate 50 years of teaching youth the Norwegian language and immersing them in its culture, Skogfjorden is holding a reunion full of Norwegian song, dance and of course food.

"You can go various ways with a reunion, you can go with the golf game, you can go with the performance by the Norwegian group or lectures by Norwegian authors, but we decided almost immediately that we wanted to recreate Skogfjorden," volunteer Sarah "Hannah" Hansen said.
