The cultural program at the February meeting is ‘An Emigrant’s Story’. CGR Janet Johnson (Drott Lodge member) will take us on a journey from Enoch Mattson’s homeland in Borstil, Sweden to his new home in Prentice, WI. Members will also create an interactive map to share where their Swedish emigrants came from in Sweden and where they landed in the USA.
SACC-DC and the Embassy of Sweden are thrilled to extend the invite to Swedish Heritage Night of 2020! Only $49 – includes a Caps T-shirt for everyone.
Cultural program: Pelle the No-Tail Cat. Marit Knollmueller, District 9 Cultural Leader and Drott Lodge Member, will take our members on a cat’s-eye journey through the streets of Uppsala. This family-friendly event is based on the popular children’s books by Gösta Knutsson.

Participants are encouraged to wear a Midsummer flower wreath, display Swedish flags and blue/yellow decorations and, if you want to go all out, you can decorate your own maypole! Just like our normal Midsummer celebration, please enjoy a Swedish summer picnic in your home. Don’t forget to bring out your snaps or drink for the toast! Activities will include sing-alongs with Scandinavian musicians and singers and other activities we can do together.
