The Thule Lodge is the Swedish organization for Chautauqua County organized 113 years ago to help the Swedish immigrants settle in the U.S. Today, the organization serves to preserve the Swedish heritage through events and activities.

Tom Eckberg is the lodge chairman, and the first meeting of this year was held in the Falcon’s Nest in Falconer. Up to this time, all meetings had been canceled due to the world health situation. Vice chairman Susan W. Sipos gave the new members the oath of the lodge, and welcomed them to the club. A corn roast is being planned for Thursday, Aug. 27, at 5:30 p.m. Due to social distancing, reservations will be needed, and a limited number may attend. An invitation will be sent to members. New members to the lodge are always welcome.
