December Meeting

Elizabeth “Elsebet” Curtiss and Gina Moorhead

Elizabeth "Elsebet" Curtiss has spent most of her life learning about, teaching, and living the Norwegian language and culture.  At 11, she started attending Skogfjorden, Concordia´s Norwegian Language Village, and has now been on staff for 20 years. In addition to summers at Skogfjorden, Elizabeth has also taught Norwegian online and in person, in the states and in Norway. A year ago, Elizabeth was approached by Ingvill Kaasin, the original owner of Hovden Formal Farm Wear.  She was looking to move back to Norway and asked if Elizabeth and her sister, Gina, would be interested in taking over.  This opportunity felt like the right thing at the right time and has been a fantastic way for Elizabeth to continue to explore, share, and build upon her Scandinavian heritage. 


We are a vibrant group of professional women
who are interested in contemporary Norwegian
issues and all things Norwegian. 


The Lakselaget Scholarship and Opportunity
Fund was established to celebrate, encourage
and advance the organization's motto,
women who swim against the current. 


Lakselaget holds monthly luncheons where
members gather to network, share news, and
take part in a traditional Norwegian meal
of salmon, potatoes and cucumber salad.
