It’s been a hundred years since local volunteers built the Sons of Norway Hall on Petersburg’s Hammer Slough. The white, barn-style building is a local waterfront icon and has long served as a favorite location for public and private functions along with being the home of the local Son’s lodge, which is the oldest in Alaska and one of many lodges throughout the US, Canada and Norway. Petersburg’s lodge, Fedrelandet 23, is celebrating the halls centennial with a sold-out banquet Saturday night. Joe Viechnicki recently Spoke with Sons President Jill Williams:
Tickets have sold out for The Sons of Norway Hall banquet, but there are still raffle tickets available for the “Trip Around the World” quilt made by members of the Sons and the Raincountry Quilters to commemorate the occasion.
