Publicity Director Messages

From our Publicity Director – LaVonne Wier

I enjoyed the convention, and then our Fagernes Lodge from Blair, Wisconsin had the Trygason Lodge from Osseo as our guests for a Fyrbal on June 24th. I’ve been on another trip to the Creation Museum in Kentucky and returned home just yesterday. Nice to go, but always feels great to get back home. It’s been a busy June! Submissions for consideration in the Viking are due to me by July 10th. 

One thing I learned from my predecessor, Karen Eberhardt, is something I was doing a lot of the time, and shouldn’t have been!
Please do not edit your photos before sending them in. (I usually edit everything - don’t do that). If the people in your photo look far away when you take the picture — get closer before you snap away!
Try to leave out the ceiling and floor when you take the picture. The people at the Viking will do the editing. Good quality pictures have a better chance of being chosen. I have to pick only a few for submission each month. I think that will be the hard part of the job - picking the ones to send in out of all the great photos I receive. Here is the form to submit with the photos. Just click the link to get the form.
Hope you all are having a great summer!

 Hello lodges,

Shhh - I think spring might be trying to come with the welcomed sunshine today! I just learned, I have more time this month to submit photos. So please send them to me by Sunday, May 22, 2022. Hopefully we will capture some May lodge activities. Remember to use the new photo submission form.  Also please read about sending your lodge newsletter to the convention with your lodge delegates on the separate document.

Thank you,
