Our summer Swedish language classes start the week of June 18. Average class size is eight to 12 students. Several levels of instruction; expert teachers. One of them, Laura Wideburg, literally wrote the book for once-a-week language students—actually, she's written six books and counting! Print a registration form and and bring it to your first class.

Midsummer with Bengt
Here's some home-movie footage of Bengt Hag, the Club's late unofficial ambassador, celebrating Midsommar with his relatives back home in Fornby, Sweden, in 1989. Closer to home, we're keeping many of these same traditions at the Club. Hope to see you at Midsommar this year!
Swedish School Gets Noticed
