Did you know that Skandia By-laws (Article 3.a.) provides for honorary life membership?

Honorary life membership, which may be conferred upon any Skandia Folkdance Society member of at least ten years’ cumulative standing, who has performed continual or extraordinary service to the Society, as determined and voted upon by the Board of Trustees. Board meeting minutes shall state the qualifications of the member for said award. No more than two honorary life memberships may be conferred for any one-year period. Each honorary life member shall have the right to vote, but shall be exempt from payment of annual dues and regular class fees. This exemption does not apply to special workshops, such as the Skandia Ball, Vinterdansen, and Springdans Northwest. For such events, honorary life members must pay all applicable fees.

Over the years, Skandia has awarded this honor to members who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. Let us celebrate the extraordinary contributions of:
