Stjernen Lodge Members
Stjernen has been active in the Astoria Scandinavian community for almost 100 years. They participate in the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival, held in June. This major community event which is over forty years old includes the crowning of a Scandinavian princess, Nordic food booths, crafts, dancing and other festivities. This festival draws people from the entire Pacific Northwest.
The lodges programs and activities include:
- Rosemaling (traditional decorative painting)
- Nordic Cooking
Rosettes are delicate
& delicious cookies

This lodge is another of our very special early lodges belonging to the original Daughters of Norway of the Pacific Coast, which officially changed its name to Daughters of Norway in 1950. These lodges generally took their names from Nordic mythology, some heavenly body or a geographical reference. In Norwegian, Stjernen literally means "the star."
