Located in the San Francisco’s South Bay Area, our members come from San Jose, Los Altos, Saratoga, Los Gatos, and Fremont in the East Bay. Social time with coffee and treats begins at 9:30 A.M., the business meeting begins at 10:00 A.M., followed by the heritage program. Guest speakers and some of our members bring their expertise and love of Nordic culture, enriching our knowledge and ties to our Scandinavian roots. One of our members is an expert in Rosemaling Art and teaches classes which lodge sisters attend. Another member leads a group learning Norwegian language. We have a collection of fiction and non fiction books about Norway available for members. Members say what they value most about the lodge are the friendships that result from their association with sisters of shared Norwegian heritage.

Lodge's NameAG-Logo.gif

The lodge was named for a noted sculptress Anne Grimdalen, born in 1899 in the Telemark region of Norway. She is most famous for the three colossal sculptures which decorate the facade of the Oslo City hall and figures on the large fountain adjacent to that site.  In addition to her sculptures based on historic themes, her figures of animals and Norwegian people are famous and well-loved.
