Find a Lodge

Today’s Danish Sisterhood has many lodges located throughout the United States and Canada. We are proud to be the largest Danish-American organization in North America.

Membership in the Danish Sisterhood is an opportunity to become active in a local lodge. A lodge provides socialization with other women and men interested in Denmark and the chance to learn more about Danish customs and traditions.

Through monthly meetings, local lodges offer a variety of benefits including guest speakers, language lessons, cooking demonstrations, travel logs, civic projects and Danish craft lessons. Every lodge is unique and brings Denmark to life for its members in a variety of ways.

If there is not a lodge located near you, we would like to invite you to join our virtual lodge, Tivoli Lodge #300. Tivoli Lodge members stay connected through monthly virtual gatherings, email contact and a Facebook Group.

We would also welcome the opportunity to work with you to establish a new lodge in your hometown. See “Organizing a Lodge” for complete details on how to start a lodge.

To learn more about Lodges, contact Karen Vig-Keathley, National Trustee.

TIVOLI LODGE (Participate from Anywhere)

 The Tivoli Lodge is a virtual lodge for members who live too far away to make it possible to attend a lodge meeting in their local area. The lodge members connect monthly by way of virtual meetings (Zoom), their own Facebook group, by email or phone.
