Karin Weeden of Drott Lodge will give a presentation on the many traditions in Sweden to celebrate Easter. She will show how to make authentic Swedish decorations and will offer insights into some “Holy Week” traditions that are very different to how it is celebrated in America. The buffet will feature traditional foods for Easter.

That will be followed by another 30 minute presentation by Charlotte Börjeson, a Delegate of the Vasa Order of Sweden and a representative from D.I.S (Digital Genealogical Society in Sweden) and member of Swede-Gen. Charlotte will give an overview of their online services which may connect with other genealogy websites our members are using or may be interested in. Her organization will participate in the May 2020 Scandinavian Genealogy conference being planned, in large part, by our Cultural Committee member, Janet Johnson.

This cultural program will be followed by a business meeting. Both parts are free and open to visitors.
