Memorial Service for Jon Pederson

Untitled design.png

A memorial service to honor our tireless supporter and friend, Jon Pederson will be held at Mindekirken on Sunday, October 13, at 3:00pm. An outdoor reception will follow the service, and Norway House will be open for those who wish to sit inside with coffee. Norway House and Mindekirken are located on the same block with a shared parking lot.

The address for Mindekirken, The Norwegian Lutheran Memorial Church is:
924 East 21st Street
Minneapolis, MN 55404

Among the many hats Jon wore in the Norwegian-American community, he served on the Norway House Board of Directors and was the former Board Chairman. He touched many lives through his steadfast involvement in our community until his sudden passing on August 29. His funeral was held on September 5 in Spicer, MN.

Baked Goods for the Memorial

In thinking of ways we could honor our beloved Jon Pederson, and friends have wondered what could they do, we are asking that anyone who would like to make a baked good, especially Norwegian, for his memorial service, it would be appreciated.

Stine Aasland, the Waffle Queen, who considered Jon her American father, will be making waffles, to honor him.  She will be serving waffles and coffee outdoors. Mindekirken and Norway House will serve coffee and baked goods. We feel this should best accommodate the anticipated amount of friends expected.

We will need the baked goods to be delivered to Norway House on Saturday, October 12th between the hours 10-2. 

If you need to have the container/tin they are delivered in returned to you,  please mark it with masking tape and your name and phone number.

Please contact Nancy Olson by email or phone as to what you are contributing and approximate amount.  Such as 4 dozen Krumkake or 1 pan of lemon bars (small\large) – Jon’s favorite!

Volunteers will be needed to help with plating and serving.  Let Nancy know if you would be willing to help. We will be working around the Leif Eriksson Festival being held at the church in the morning, including a special lunch, and we will plate the cookies at 9:00 at the church and take them to Norway House after the service. After the service, we'll need help monitoring and cleaning up during and after the reception. As Jon used to say, “Many hands make light work.”

Champagne, Music, & Peer Gynt Sweets - Fundraiser for EGSMN Piano Competition

Champagne, Music, & Peer Gynt Sweets - Fundraiser for EGSMN Piano Competition

The annual fundraiser for EGSMN. This year’s concert theme Grieg’s Favorite Grieg Songs - Sung in English! Proceeds will go toward Edvard Grieg Society of Minnesota’s 2019 Piano Competition celebrating young performers of Grieg and other Nordic composers.

Edvard Grieg wrote a total of 179 songs during his career. We know from the printed programs prepared for these concerts, most of which were preserved by Grieg himself, that he programmed some of his songs over and over again—hence, “Grieg’s favorite Grieg songs.” In 1988, the Edvard Grieg Committee – a group of musicologists from Norway and Denmark – commissioned EGSMN Board Member & reknowned Grieg scholar, William Halverson to create new English versions of most of Grieg’s song texts. The program on January 20 will use these English versions.

Performances by soprano Maria Jette, baritone Alan Dunbar, and pianist Sonja Thompson.
