The yearly lawn program is held on May 17th, or the Sunday closest to that date. It is the Norwegian Constitution day,
and commemorates the liberation from Denmark in 1814.
The Entertainment is provided by musical performers and folk dance groups. The San Diego ”Mannskor” (mens choir)
”Damskor” (womens choir) sings traditional and current Norwegian songs.
The food fare for the lawn program is the popular Rommegrot ( a sour cream porridge) Lefse, (potato pancake with sugar and cinnamon),
Vafler (waffles), Solbaersaft (black currant juice) and coffee. Ice cream and hot dogs are free for the children.

Viking Soup with French bread, Lefse, Vafler and hot Solbaertoddy.
