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, held earlier this month. The Owensons rode in a brand-new handmade 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 the griddles.
