The purposes and goals of the Founders were to protect members of Sons of Norway and their families from the financial hardships experienced during times of sickness or death in the family. Over time, the mission of Sons of Norway has expanded to include the preservation of Norwegian heritage and culture in our Society. We have grown since our beginning and are now the largest Norwegian organization outside Norway.

The Vikings of the Smokies Lodge attempts to celebrating the rich tapestry of Norwegian culture – from learning to make traditional foods, exploring cultural programming, including Scandinavian dancing and language lessons in East Tennessee.
