Scandinavian Society holds dinner meetings themed for each Nordic country. We start each dinner meeting with presentations and entertainment pertaining to the country for that meeting. We learn about the culture and traditions of Scandinavia, about current events, art, sustainability, history etc. We have guest speakers, member presentations, entertainment, artists...
The dinners are fun, educational, entertaining and the food is excellent. The chef usually prepares a few traditional Scandinavian dishes to go along with the main menu.
Examples of presentations we have had:
-Growing up in Nazi occupied Denmark by Johannes Bjørner
-Finnish fashion and textiles by Miti von Weissenberg
-Presentation on "Norwegian Celebrations" by Elisabeth Pettersen Sonoff
-Danish Easter traditions by Hans Tandrup
-Scandinavian furniture design by Skip Wicklund
