Leif is the one to the right!



As you all know, Leif Erikson was the real discoverer of North America. The Scandinavian Organizations in Northeast Ohio has a long standing tradition to celebrate Leif on his day, the Official Leif Erikson Day– always on October 9th.


We meet at 11:45am at the Leif Erikson bust outside the Shooters Restaurant, Flats West, for the celebration, including a “special” toast to Leif’s honor.


After that we all have lunch at Shooters.


Participation is free but you pay your own lunch and beverages at Shooters.




To be able to reserve the proper number of tables at shooters, we ask you to confirm your attendance by signing on, using this link.  Register Here!


We look forward to seeing you Thursday October 9th.
