In January we had a wonderful evening with Scandinavian high school exchange students. Those who attended gave a free will offering of $150 to assist them on a trip to see the Grand Canyon. Many thanks to our Carol Hawkins and Jerry Johnson for making this happen.
We would like to thank all of our members for another successful season of the Scandinavian Club. We began the year with the Scandinavian Dancers in November, and then celebrated the Christmas season with the Sun Lakes Chordaires in December. In January, the Scandinavian high school exchange students joined with us and in February we were treated to a grand tour of Scandinavian countries by Jeanette Rajamaki of Savvy Travelers.
Our last meeting of the 2014/2015 year is on March 15 and will feature Sylvia Jorgensen and Carl Nyberg. They were a big hit last year and will treat us to some great music (might some trip the light fantastic?). They will assist with a presentation of Scandinavian flags. The National Anthem of each of the countries will be played as they are posted. We will also set aside some time in March for our annual meeting to present our new budget and hold election of board members to serve in the coming 2015/2016 year.
After feasting on a wonderful smorgasbord of food provided by those in attendance in February, March attendees will once again have a choice of two main entrees served with vegetables, a potato dish, rolls and a salad. Desert and coffee is included. The cost is $13 per individual. The social hour begins at 5:00 p.m. with an open bar followed by dinner at 6:00 p.m. in the Arizona Room at Sun Lakes Country Club. Reservations are required by March 9. Make your reservation on the internet at www.tiny.cc/scanclub-res. You can also call Sue Jordan at 480-895-5691.
