About Us






About Lodge Vågen No. 588

We are a local lodge of the Vasa Order of America, a Fraternal Society originally established for the benefit of Nordic immigrants more than a century ago, but now dedicated to preserving, promoting and advancement our Swedish and Nordic culture and heritage.

We are now meeting at the Fellowship Hall, Waretown United Methodist Church, 27 Bryant Road, Waretown, NJ, normally on the third Sunday of each Month, 2PM to 4PM except January and February. Changes this year include the following: April 21st, June 25th and December 1st.

Please go to our web calendar to verify the meeting dates as sometimes this will change due to Church Activities.

At our meetings, you will find an opportunity to socialize with fellow members of Nordic roots sharing common history and interests.

Our activities include promotion and participation in Scandinavian festivals, celebrations, parades and other events at Vasa Park (Budd Lake NJ), and other locations throughout the State and Delaware Valley.
