General note

Biographical Information

Florence Buck is of Norwegian descent and actively participates in the Daughters of Norway Embla lodge in Tacoma. The Daughters' main focus is to develop closer ties with Norwegian culture and unite women of Norwegian birth or descent or married to a person of Norwegian birth or descent. Believing that women need the opportunity to be independent, the Daughters of Norway have remained separate from the Sons of Norway. Florence believes it is necessary for the lodges to have interesting programs in order to get and keep new members. Examples of these programs are cooking, beadwork, Hardanger and dance programs/workshops. Florence would like to see a women's choral group started as well.
