We are a local lodge of the Vasa Order of America, a fraternal society originally established for the benefit of Swedish immigrants more than a century ago and now dedicated to preserving and sharing our Swedish and Nordic culture and heritage.
At our meetings, you will find an opportunity to socialize with fellow members of Nordic roots sharing common history and interests.
Nobel Lodge No. 184 became a chartered lodge of the Vasa Order of America 4 February 1911. In February 2011, we will begin the celebration of Nobel's centenary of active membership in the Vasa Order. Join us at the District Lodge Pacific Northwest No. 13 biennial convention when we celebrate our century with our Vasa brothers and sisters and the greater Portland and Scandinavian community.
