Hegelund Profiles: May Karin
May-Karin has always been a crucial contributor in the family. Her formative years were characterized by social responsibility, charity and the idea of taking care of each other. Her great-grandparents, Nils Andreas Hegelund (1848-1925) and Anna Fredrikke (1852-1946) were local celebrities, their family being well-known for their social engagement.
May-Karin is someone who’s passionately immersed in food and cooking. She is the custodian of all the old family recipes and traditional fish dishes are her specialty.
Now retired, May-Karin occupies herself these days by volunteering at the Red-Cross as well as the Church City Mission. She has recently expanded her engagement through the House of Hegelund Foundation.
