dennis-rusinko-summer-2016Dennis Rusinko – President – District #1

I am in my second term as District 1 President. I am a charter member of Syttende Mai Lodge 1-9-517 located in Minneapolis Mn. This means I have been a member of Sons of Norway for 46 years. I have held almost all of the positions in my lodge, and am currently the lodge Treasurer. I am also the co-founder, along with Gary Anderson, of the Viking Age Club, Sons of Norway.

I am self-employed as a design draftsman specializing in new home and remodeling design. I am born in Oakland, Ca, but came to Minnesota when I was 7 years old. I served in the U.S. Army and am a veteran of Viet Nam. I graduated from Minneapolis Edison High School in 1966. My main hobby is Genealogy.
