Verdandi Lodge No. 3

A Member of the Independent Order of Svithiod

Posted by on Oct 1, 2017

In 1992, Warren was recommended to Verdandi Lodge #3 by Leonard Carlson (Chairman) and was elected to the Board of Trustees. In 1994, he was appointed to the position of Custodian. Then, in 1996, he was appointed as an Auditor, serving continuously for 21 years to the present. In 2005, Warren suffered a terrible accident with a semi-trailer which ran him off the road. After recovering from injuries suffered and cervical fusion surgery, he returned to Verdandi in 2013 and resumed the position of custodian at the request of Stan Johnson. He became Head Auditor in 2015. Warren was elected as a delegate to the 104th Svithiod Convention held in 2015 and at that time was elected to the Board of Directors of the Grand Lodge.

On October 3, 2015, Warren married his true love, Janice Nelson, daughter of the unforgettable Stella and Howard Nelson. Warren reports that he is greatly honored to have been elected as your new Vice Grand Master at the 105th Svithiod Convention. Warren says “I believe we will continue to make Svithiod a place for all those of Scandinavian decent and their families to enjoy the history and culture of Scandinavia. Let’s unite in our efforts to increase membership and interest in all of our lodges so that we may preserve our long tradition of Truth, Unity, and Charity”.
