TRE LAG STEVNE

ITS CALLED THE "TRE LAG STEVNE" AS THREE LAGS (Trønderlag of America, Gudbrandsdal, and Nord Hedmark og Hedemarken) JOIN TOGETHER TO HOLD THIS ANNUAL MEETING. Many years ago each lag (organization) held their own stevne before they discovered they could share in overall costs, invite a broader range of speakers, attract quality vendors, etc. Also because of their proximity many attendees have ancestors associated with more than one lag (sometimes all 3, OR MORE)!

THE STEVNE NEEDS YOUR HELP.

Are you willing to volunteer some time and talent at the Stevne?
We can use some help with a variety of tasks at the Stevne: spend an hour or two assisting in the Hospitality Room, take photos of Stevne activities, work at the Trønderlag membership table and perhaps things we haven't thought of yet. Please contact any of our offices, for more information about our needs.
