Noel and Sharon Owenson of Story City were named Sons of Norway’s Kong Sverre Lodge’s 2017 King and Queen for Story City’s Annual Scandinavian Days. The Owensons rode in a brand new hand-made wooden “Viking Ship” during the Scandinavian Days parade as representatives of Sons of Norway. Kong Sverre member Don Todd made the wooden ship and David Amensen hand-carved the wooden dragon head in the front. After the parade, Noel and Sharon presided over “Heritage Hall,” where Sons of Norway sponsored artists, crafters, authors, a “Viking” and his artwork, along with having Scandinavian pastries and drinks for sale, including lefse and Norwegian heart waffles fresh off their griddles.
