I don’t know how to break this to those outside of Minnesota North and North Dakota but lefse is kind of a big deal around here. I heard that 1/2 a slice went for a buck at the Norsk Hostfest in Minot. Each package that was made by the members of Trinity in Drayton contained three lefses and I’m not sure what they sold them for, but it is a mission fundraiser. These projects like the LWML Mites have big dividends. The LWML at Zion in Grafton gave away $1500 spread over five projects Internationally, in the District and in Grafton. I am humbly proud of these endeavors. I would have volunteered at the lefse bake but I am allergic to flour and potato peeling and terrified of women with rolling pins. Thanks and God bless to all who served and worked.
