They will be serving authentic Scandinavian fare from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Kennewick First Lutheran Church. The meal, served buffet-style, includes lutefisk, Norwegian meatballs and gravy, potatoes, lefse, salad and an assortment of Scandinavian cookies.
Cost is $20 for adults and $8 for children 5 to 12 years old. Children 4 and younger are free. Tickets will be sold at the door.
The Scandinavian meal will be served at the Kennewick First Lutheran Church at Highway 395 and Yelm Street.
Members of the sons of Norway will be making lefse-- a flat potato bread -- beginning at 9 a.m. Jan. 24 and 31 at the church. On Feb. 1, after 9:30 a.m., they will be making rosettes and fattigman -- cookies -- at the church.
Anyone who would like to learn how to make any of these Scandinavian foods is welcome to join them. For more information, call Nancy Holter at 375-0919 or Ginger Fields at 374-7876.
