A sold-out crowd of locals and visitors made Norwegian toasts, shared memories, and celebrated history during the Sons of Norway Centennial Banquet last weekend. Since it was built by volunteers in 1912, the big white, barn-style building has been an icon on the waterfront and a top venue for local events and social life in Petersburg.

Speakers included Sons of Norway International President Dan Rude who led the big crowd in a toast. Matt Lichtenstein produced this sound portrait:
