Our 2014 200th Norwegian Constitution Anniversary Gala Banquet was special

"Syttende Mai" - in Norwegian means "the 17th of May". When Norwegians mention the day they are referring to their annual celebration of the signing of the Norwegian constitution on May 17, 1814, in Eidsvoll, Norway. 200 years later we celebrated this significant event.

While Chicago could not possibly match the magnitude of the Syttende Mai parade in Oslo, Norway, that year with 100,000 people attending including children from over 100 schools, The Norwegian National League held a Gala Banquet in addition to the annual Syttende Mai parade.
