Fargo, North Dakota · Best Western Doublewood Inn
August 1-4, 2012

Velkommen til Stevne!
Both, Fargo, North Dakota and Moorhead, Minnesota were founded in 1871 where the Northern Pacific Railroad
crossed the Red River of the North. Thousands of Norwegian Immigrants came along with the railroad and se led in
Fargo/Moorhead and across the area of the Red River Valley. To this day over a third of the popula on in the area claim
Norwegian ancestry. Fargo is home to one of the largest and most ac ve Sons of Norway Lodges (Kringen Lodge). The
early Norwegian se lers founded Concordia College, in Moorhead, in 1891. Moorhead also lays claim to the Hjemkomst
Center… home to both the Hjemkomst Viking ship and the Hopperstad Stave Church replica.
With this strong Norwegian heritage I can’t think of a be er place for this year’s Tre Lag Stevne. This year’s theme, About
Face! Our Legacy, puts an emphasis on old pictures. A number of seminars will focus on photographs including our
keynote address by Verlyn Anderson, Old Photos – Voices of the Past. I trust the programs and ac vi es at this Stevne will
keep you busy. I am excited for the opportunity to showcase the Fargo/Moorhead area. In addi on to the great program,
I also encourage you to take advantage of the genealogy lab and the exper se provided by the Lag Genealogists.
The Fargo/Moorhead area offers other ac vi es and places to visit. On Thursday, from 5 pm-6:30 pm there will be an
open house recep on for Fred Cogelow’s Woodcarving Exhibit at the Plains Art Museum in downtown Fargo. Also that
evening, for you classic car lovers, you may want to a end “Cruisin’ Broadway” in downtown Fargo from 5pm-9pm.
Velkommen l Fargo/Moorhead og i 2012 Tre Lag Stevne!
