The Delaware Swedish Colonial Society and the Swedish Colonial Society hold a combined luncheon in early Spring  every year.  We take this time to join  together to meet, elect officers, celebrate our heritage and enjoy a speaker sharing a topic related to our organization. Please  join and help us bring new light to our cause. 

Fall Kalbord

Enjoy a Fall Smorgasbord open to members and guests. Then enjoy a  film, lecture, discussion,  or seminar, on a Swedish topic of  historical  or current interest.

We would enjoy having you as a member and participating in this fun event.

LUCIA will not be held in 2020 due to COVID.

"Lucia" is a symbol of light and hope to mankind.  She comes on the darkest day of the year to herald in the coming of light and the Christmas season.  We celebrate Lucia in December on a Sunday close to the 1th in Old Swedes Church followed by a reception in the Swedish tradition. 

All are invited to join us.  Information will be provided on the designated Lucia page.
