<From: Ruth M. Sylte>

   (Ruth, if you'd like to write a more comprehensive intro I won't say
   no. :)
   In recent years, Sons of Norway has been actively reaching out to the
   "younger" community of Norwegian-Americans. The Viking magazine has
   many interesting articles that cover subjects on modern Norway. There
   are also specific pages for children each month that look at various
   cultural and historical subjects.
   
   Sons of Norway also has special membership categories for children and
   young people. Children (up to age 15) who are the children *and/or*
   grandchildren of Sons of Norway adult members can be FREE "Heritage"
   Members in Sons of Norway. This entitles them to a number of benefits,
   including a quarterly newsletter geared specifically for that age
   group. The newsletter often carries penpal requests from American and
   Norwegian children. Young people - (about ages 15-22) can join SoN at
   a reduced membership rate and receive a newsletter geared toward their
   age group.
   
   SoN also sponsors summer camps where children can go to get an
   introduction to Norwegian language and culture. They also offer
   scholarships to study at "Camp Norway" - a 6 week summer language camp
   in Sandane, Norway - and the University of Oslo's International Summer
   School.
   
   There are a number of active SoN lodges in the San Francisco area.
   Indeed, anyone looking for Sons of Norway can usually find them
   organizing the local Syttende Mai events. :-)
   
   Sons of Norway has a Heritage Books department (run out of a store
   called "Tomten") that offers books in Norwegian and English that deal
   with the subjects listed above (and many others). They can be reached
   at:
   Heritage Books
