The Ringerike - Drammen Districts (R-DD) Lag invites emigrants and their descendants to join in preserving their cultural heritage in America. A bygdelag is an association of individuals who originate from the same district of Norway. This Lag is organized to serve people with family origins from communities in eastern Buskerud Fylke (county) in Norway including:
Historically each bygd or rural community of Norway was somewhat isolated from neighboring communities such that their speech, dress, food customs and olther folkways developed with distinct geographic variations. It is this connection to ancestral home districts in Norway that immigrants remembered and wish to perpetuate through their Bygdelag organizations.
R-DD is one of around 30 active bygdelags. It holds an annual July Stevne meeting with 6 other lags and publishes a newsletter four times per year.
