About LEVS - How to Help

Here are some ways that you can help us with our mission:

  • Join our organization. It only costs $20/year to be a "Friend of the Norseman. For only $10 more per year, you could also become a member of the crew, and join us in our activities. Download the Membership Form here.

  • Introduce our organization to your friends that are interested in history. Pass our website, newsletter, or event information out to others (or better yet, bring them to an event).

  • Volunteer to help. We can always use skilled (or willing) people to help us with various tasks, or if you feel that you have an item or service you'd be willing to donate, let us know.

  • Contact your local schools and let them know about us. What a better way for kids to learn about the Vikings than by a visit from some real live vikings? (Please note: there is a fee which varies, depending on the type of event and distance)

  • Purchase our merchandise. Our primary income is from the purchase of our merchandise. We are non-profit, so any profit we get from these items go directly back into the maintenance of our ship, to offset the costs of future events. Please take a look at our merchandise here.

  • Check your calendar. Not only to see if you're available to meet us at an event but also to see if your calendar has "Leif Ericson Day" as a holiday. If it doesn't (it probably won't), write to the publisher and suggest that they include October 9th as "Leif Ericson Day" their next edition! Don't forget to mark it in ALL your calendars and have your friends do the same!

    Please note: The following calendar publishers regularly include "Leif Ericson Day": Hoyle Products (a division of Brown & Bigelow Publishers) and The Old Farmers Almanac, Yankee Publishing. Please support them! If you are aware of any other publishers who regularly include "Leif Ericson Day" on their calendars, please let us know and we will include them.
