The Joe-Harbor Lodge #534 celebrated its 90th Anniversary at a dinner at Saron Lutheran Church in St. Joseph, Michigan on May 11, 2019. The Lodge was chartered May 4th, 1929 and continues to be active in Southwest Michigan. The first Chairman of the Lodge in 1929 was Sven Anderson of Benton Harbor. The Lodge was established as a fraternal society for the benefit of Swedish immigrants but is now dedicated to preserving and sharing Swedish and Nordic culture and heritage.
