After our regular business meeting, we will hold a fun mixing event for our newer members to get to know our older members and vice versa. This will be a fun afternoon quiz on categories related to Sweden and the other Nordic Countries and teams will be paired up to ensure that newer members can mingle easily with Drott veterans.

Feb 10 @ 2:30 pm – 5:30 pm

This event was postponed from Jan. 13th due to winter weather and rescheduled to accompany our annual Pea Soup & Pancake Dinner on Feb. 10th at 2:30pm.

Drott Lodge’s very own Ashley Mullinax was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the American reality stars of the 2018 Swedish TV series, “Ällt för Sverige”.  She will share her experiences, favorite clips from her series and some behind the scenes insights into what REALLY goes on filming reality TV. The entire series can be viewed now on YouTube.

This fun cultural program will be followed by our first business meeting of 2019 with the election of new officers. Thanks to all who came out to make our Lucia Fest and Julbord such a success in December. We hope everyone has enjoyed their holidays and we look forward to an exciting year ahead with new monthly cultural programs and Swedish social gatherings with your friends at Drott Lodge.
