Looking Ahead: Lutefisk 2017

Make plans now to help with the 56th annual lutefisk dinner to be held on Thursday, October 26, 2017.  Lefse bakes will begin on August 23 and continue for nine weeks. In addition to lefse bakes, you can volunteer in many different capacities. Renee Solberg will continue as dinner chairperson; Shelley Gustafson and Marge Albright will again serve as co-lefse leaders.

If you have been looking for a new project to become involved in, the lutefisk committee begins meeting this summer. Our current committee members have all served many years and for this dinner to continue, new leaders need to join the committee. Please think about saying “YES”!

The lutefisk committee is pleased to report that most proceeds from the 2016 dinner and bake sale have been dispersed. Many organizations and groups have benefited from our proceeds. THANK YOU!
