ELVESUND LODGE, SONS OF NORWAY
Created on October 28, 1984, to fill a need for a
Sons of Norway lodge to serve Chicago's western suburbs,
the lodge had 103 members several
who had been members of the old Saga Lodge.
Many of the organizational meetings took place in the
Riverside Town Hall and the lodge became known as the new
"Riverside Lodge". It was only logical to select the
Norwegian equivalent when it came time to select a name.
Taking a few liberties with the language, "Elvesund" can
be translated as "Riverside".
The lodge has established many activities which have
proven popular with members. For example, card parties
became an excellent way for members to become better
acquainted and have been lots of fun. The lodge
participates in Chicagoland's Syttende Mai and Riverside's
Fourth of July parades and related activities.
