Oarsmen 2015 Annual Fund awards Drakkar

The Foundation’s Oarsmen 2015 Annual Fund kicked off in 2015 and concluded just prior to the 2015 Norsk Hostfest. This annual giving program provides an opportunity to support the Foundation’s mission in general each and every year through unrestricted gifts. Funding received through the Oarsmen Annual Fund allows the Foundation Board the greatest discretion in using the funds where the Foundation’s mission can be best served.

Souris Valley Dental Group’s very generous gift qualified them to be chosen as “Chieftain” of a Foundation “drakkar” (Viking longboat).


Foundation Development Director Ritch Houge presents Jock Stevick from Souris Valley Dental Group with their very own Oarsmen Drakkar and title of Chieftain!
