The Danish Societies of Dania and Dannebrog of California and Nevada have rescheduled their annual convention for March 31 to April 2, 2022.  The change is due to COVID, and it is hoped that the new dates will be late enough to allow for a safe gathering.  The convention, where Grand Lodge officers and delegates meet to conduct annual business and elect new officers, will be held at the Double Tree Hotel in Modesto, California.

     The shared mission of The Danish Societies of Dania & Dannebrog is stated on their website, “We are a charitable organization that honors and celebrates Danish American heritage.  We raise and maintain funds so that we can comfort the sick and distressed, award scholarships to our youth and supplement our retiree’s pensions.  We meet regularly to network, enjoy Danish customs, and always have a good time. We are looking for new friendships to enrich our club.”

     During normal times, the branches have wonderful monthly gatherings to celebrate their Danish heritage with much “hygge” and great food.  They encourage anyone interested in Danish culture to join them, as they are always looking for new members.  They also maintain a scholarship fund for college students who are members, or children of members.

     California branches are located in San Francisco, Fresno, Salinas, Livermore, Castro Valley, Petaluma, Ferndale, San Jose, Santa Maria, Solvang, and Modesto.  The Nevada branch is in Reno.  Anyone interested in more information, or membership is encouraged to contact the Grand Secretaries - Tim Heer tim-gs@sbcglobal.net or Natalie Heer natalie-gs@sbcglobal.net.
