If you ever find yourself in Chicago the second Saturday of the month,  and you have a craving for some Torsk, the solution may be a visit to the Chicago Torske Klub. - Stavanger Aftenblad - 26 May 2006

Welcome to the Chicago Torske Klub Web Site at torskeklub.org! It's good to be in Chicago on the second Saturday of the month.  We will update this monthly for current events and dinner meeting news.

December 9, 2017 - Christmas Celebration

Our good board member and pastor David Langseth will lead the Christmas Celebration, accompanied by Katheen West and Milt Gustafson as torskemaster.

November 11, 2017 - Carpetbaggers

Our speaker will be Mr. David Furholmen, who will speak about about the "Carpetbaggers", a claudenstine group of WWII special forces involved with Norwegian operations.

December is the Last Month for Dues

We sent membership material for the 2018 season in October. The usual deadline is December 31, 2017, but we encourage our member to submit the $40 dues when received so we don't have to chase them. This pays for the letter, website, lefse, and a Linne Aquavit toast on your birthday. The $25 meal costs is the meal and facility only. This a good time to verify information also.

Tom Peterson - New Recording Secretary

You will notice a new face when you check into the luncheon. Tom Peterson has agreed to join the board, and serve as the Recording Secretary. Garry Grube continues on the board, but asked to step down from the secretary duties to attend to the family farm. You also notice a new response for email reservations and a new phone number for reservations

Our thanks to both Tom and Garry for their service.
