The community of Vivian will host their annual Syttende Mai celebration Monday, May 18 in Vivian, SD.
An authentic Norwegian celebration is planned that will include a parade, a Norwegian dinner, and entertainment by comedian and musician Gordy Pratt.
The parade will start at 5:45 pm from the Vivian Lutheran Church and proceed down Main Street. Refreshments and hors d’oeuvres will be served in the Vivian Hall immediately after the parade, followed by the authentic dinner at 6:30 pm. The menu includes Lutefisk, (with lots of butter) Swedish meatballs, and sauce, lefse, mashed potatoes, steamed cabbage, creamed peas, and fruit soup. And, for dessert try fattigman, kransekake, rosettes or krumkake.
Entertainment will be provided by Gordy Pratt from Spearfish, the original, fabulous ‘One Guy.’ Called the Victor Borge of the guitar, Gordy entertains and engages audiences with a unique concert that blends world-class guitar playing, original songs, popular favorites and hysterical baby-boomer humor all from ‘One Guy’.
"This event sells out every year, so make your reservations early," said Uffda Crew member Vern Larson. Contact Larson for ticket information.
" With limited space, people are encouraged to call for tickets early," added Larson.
The last day for ticket sales is Sunday, May 10th.

The Lyman Alumni Association officers met last Wednesday to plan the 2015 Lyman Alumni reunion.
Vice president Norval Millard led the meeting in the absence of president Jim Cole. Others present were Christie Collins, second vice, and Shelli Collins, secretary. Lucy Halverson, treasurer was also absent.
The date of the alumni reunion will be the last Saturday in the month of July, which this year falls on July 25, 2015. The honored classes will be those ending in "5" and "0".
This is the same weekend the Presho High School alumni meet and the Presho Fire Dept. has traditionally held their street dance as a fund raiser.
Several suggestions collected at last years gathering were reviewed by the officers and considered.
There was a suggestion made to have the reunion at a location in or near Presho. Shelli will contact Karen Willis with regards to renting the new Eastern Star building on Main Street in Presho since it is air conditioned, and has tables and chairs available. It was also decided that the Lyman Alumni Association will provide meat of some sort and buns for sandwiches at the social and ask other alumni to bring chips or salad.
The deadline to make an application for the Lyman Alumni Scholarship is May 1st.
To qualify for the scholarship, the college attendee must have graduated from Lyman, be a full time student in his/her 2nd year or more of college and have a C average or better. In order to apply, please send name and proof of grades to Lucy Halverson, PO Box 518, Presho, SD 57568 or email email@example.com or contact Brittany Reuman at Lyman High School.
Next meeting of the officers will be May 13th at 7:00 at Hot Rods.
