Eivind Funnemark returns to Daughters of Norway

RAINBOW – The Daughters of Norway, Hulda Garborg Lodge #49, will hold their next meeting on Saturday, April 12, with a talk by Eivind Funnemark at 11 a.m. He originally presented his personal story to the Daughters of Norway in March 2013. He is now returning to continue the next phase of his story.

Funnemark was born in Telemark, Norway and was 14 years old when World War II started. He started helping out with the courier service for the Norwegian underground at an early age and eventually had to flee to Sweden for fear of being discovered and placed in a slave labor camp. He now lives in San Juan Capistrano with his wife, Berit, who founded Hulda Garborg Lodge.

Following the program, there will be a potluck lunch at noon and a business meeting at 12:45 p.m. All women of Scandinavian heritage are welcome to attend the Daughters of Norway meetings at the Rainbow Valley Grange Hall, 2160 Rainbow Valley Blvd.
