Three names to be added to Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame

MINOT, N.D. - Three names will be added to the Scandinavian-American Hall of Fame, a signature event of Norsk Hostfest next week.

Beatrice Ojakangas, Stein Ove Fenne, and the Stenehjem family out of Watford City will be recognized at the banquet and they will join many others who honored the their Scandinavian heritage.

”We look for Scandinavian-Americans or Scandinavians that have done over and above, that have become famous, that have done works of renown and so we look for them and we ask them if they'd like to be inducted and most of them say 'yes they would be honored,’” said David Reiten, president of the Norsk Hostfest.

The Hall of Fame banquet is next Tuesday, and the Norsk Hostfest begins the next day on Sept. 28.
