  • Bernt Balchen Lodge 3-566 Sons of Norway held their annual  Scandinavian Fair September 7th at Central Volunteer Fire Department in Bohemia. An honored guest was Ingrid Herland, who turns 103 on September 18th. The Long Island resident spends her summers in Rowland. Her parents came from Norway. Lorraine Bentley said that Ingrid and her daughter came for lunch and enjoyed mingling with the crowd. The Bernt Balchen Lodge continues to celebrate their common Scandinavian heritage and the Norwegian roots that are deep in the community of Rowland, Pa., in Lackawaxen Township. Many of the Lodge members are direct descendants of immigrants who came to Rowland in the early 1900s. For more information contact Lodge President Mary Ann Ryan (Mikki) at 729-7628. Ingrid Herland is shown with her daughter Martha Richtberg. (
