A Marvelous May Meeting!

We had a very eventful last meeting of the spring! Our Children's Club heard from Swedish au pair Emma Anderson about her life growing up in Sweden, and also practiced music and dance for Midsommar.

At our business meeting, we inducted two new members - welcome, Brenda and Juan! - and draped the charter for Inga Pidgeon and Rosanna Swanson.

Our cultural program was a live interview with longtime SVEA 253 member Linda Christensen about her heritage, life and connections to Sweden and Vasa, which will be archived at the VASA Archives in Bishop Hill! You can watch the full interview at the link below.

Here are our next gatherings & summer celebrations:

- National Day lunch at Rick's Boatyard: June 8

- Midsommar gathering at the Latvian Community Center: June 23

- Kräftskiva at the Latvian Community Center: August 4

Our regular meetings and programming will resume September 8.
