GREETINGS from the President!Thank you for your interest in the Norwegian National League of Chicago (NNL). We hope our web site helps you learn more about us, our member organizations and their events; as well as the events of other Scandinavian groups in the Chicagoland area.
We are the “umbrella” organization for many of the area’s Norwegian-American organizations and sponsor scholarships and three events during the year. Our main event is the Syttende Mai (17th of May) celebration with a banquet and a parade honoring the signing of the Norwegian constitution in 1814. Additionally we have, a Leif Erikson celebration where we lay a wreath at the statue of Leif Erikson in October, and present a program as part of “Christmas Around the World” at the Museum of Science and Industry in December.
