Our History

Sonja Lodge No. 38, Sons of Norway, was organized on October 2, 1937, with 53 charter members. The Lodge was named after Sonja Henie, the Norwegian Olympic gold medal ice skater and film star. Currently, Sonja Lodge has over 200 members.

In 1941 the Sonja Daughters was organized. This group of women actively support Sonja Lodge through social events and fund raising. Their annual Bazaar in October features handcrafted items, demonstrations, baked goods, a split-pea soup luncheon and a Norwegian cultural display.

The Norsemen are members of the Pacific Coast Norwegian Singers Assocociation and participate at many events, such as Sangerfest, the Lodge Leif Erikson celebration, Syttende Mai, and sometimes the Scandinavian Festival in Junction City. 

Our newly remodeled building is on one level, has a commercial kitchen and enough room to accommodate all members and guests.

Membership in Sonja Lodge continues to grow. We welcome everyone who is interested in learning more about Scandinavian, and especially Norwegian culture and heritage. Meetings are held on the first Thursday of each month, except in July and August.
