Swedish Club Lucia Print

Lucia crownApplications for the Swedish Club of Houston's 2019 Lucia are now being accepted. Our 2019 Lucia will be presented at the Swedish Christmas Traditions and Lucia Procession.

Candidates must be young women between the ages of 16 and 24, and they must be members of the Club. In addition, they must be able to attend the Swedish Christmas Traditions program, and they must also be able to represent the Club at the Texas Day celebration in Barkeryd, Sweden on Sunday, August 2, 2020. A portion of the round-trip airfare from Houston to Sweden will be provided for our 2019 Lucia.

As ambassador of the Swedish Club of Houston, our Lucia will be in a parade and send greetings to the people of Barkeryd on behalf of the Club. Finally, our Lucia must be able to attend the following year's Annual Meeting (usually the last Saturday in January) to give a presentation about her adventures in Sweden.

The Lucia program has provided a wonderful way to travel and learn about our Swedish ancestry and our Texas connection with Barkeryd, Sweden since 1987.
