Valborgsmässoafton CANCELLED Print

No BonfireWe received word this morning that Dr. Winstrom woke up to no water on her ranch.  While that, by itself, is not cause enough for concern, it *does* mean there will be no bathroom facilities available.  That, and coupled with high winds and over 50% chance of rain in the forecast, means not exactly the best (or safest) conditions for a bonfire!  Sadly, we are having to cancel this event for today.

One of the objectives and goals of the Swedish Club of Houston is to locate and join together people interested in Swedish heritage (Swedes, Swedish descendants, and others) in the Houston area, primarily through informal events and get-togethers, social as well as cultural.

The Club currently counts just under 120 members who meet at various events throughout the year, such as the annual Pea Soup and Pancakes supper, Kräftskiva (Crayfish Party), Valborgsmässoafton (Bonfire), Smörgåsbord, and Christmas Traditions/Lucia program, as well as special events centered around cultural happenings.

Välkommen till Houston! Print

Houston is the fourth-largest city in the United States, the largest city within the state of Texas, and "the energy capital of the world." The Houston metropolitan area has a population of over 5.7 million. Houston's economy has a broad industrial base in the energy, finance, manufacturing, aeronautics, transportation, and health care sectors and is a leading center for building oilfield equipment; only New York City is home to more Fortune 500 headquarters than Houston. The Port of Houston ranks first in the United States in international waterborne tonnage handled and second in total cargo tonnage handled. Houston has an active visual and performing arts scene in the Theater District and is one of few U.S. cities that offer year-round resident companies in all major performing arts.

The Swedish Club of Houston is one of four prominent Swedish-oriented organizations serving the Swedish and American community in Houston; the others are the Honorary Consulate General of Sweden in Houston, the Swedish American Chamber of Commerce Texas, and SWEA.
