Ongoing Community Events
Well, there's not much to feature here, for the time being. But we'll be back with Scandi-related events in our community as soon as we can.
Ser frem til det! (Looking forward to it!)
Meanwhile, we can all polish up our Finnish Tango skills at home!
Daughters of Norway Monthly Meeting
Daughters of Norway is composed of a Grand Lodge and subordinate lodges. The goals of the organization include:
- To unite into a sisterhood, women who wish to preserve Norwegian heritage
- To maintain among members a knowledge of the history, culture, and language of Norway
- To build a strong support system and bond of friendship within the sisterhood
The lodge actively shares Scandinavian heritage through interesting programs and interest groups and with the community at the annual Norway Day in Minneapolis in the summer. Click Here for more information. The Daughters of Norway Pauline Fjelde Lodge #51, meets on the third Saturday of each month at 10 am at the University Lutheran Church, 601 13th Avenue SE, Minneapolis. All interested women are invited to join.
(Note: The lodge does not meet in January, July, or August)
The Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir
Do you have a daughter, granddaughter, niece, etc…who loves to sing…wants to learn more about her Scandinavian heritage…and is 8-16 years old? The Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir is dedicated to the preservation of Swedish heritage through the performance of traditional Swedish music. The Choir performs traditional Swedish folk tunes and hymns in both Swedish and English. The Choir also performs a Christmas concert, which includes a St. Lucia pageant. This beautiful presentation of St. Lucia by candlelight is a highlight of the season.
The Svenskarnas Dag Girls Choir helps girls learn about their Swedish heritage, develop choral skills, gain self-confidence and create lasting friendships. Wearing their colorful Swedish costumes... Lucia gowns at Christmas...and performing traditional Swedish music, their concerts are not only "music to the ear", but also visually beautiful.
If you would like more information about joining this fun group, please contact: Diane Noble, Director, 612-825-8808, firstname.lastname@example.org.
