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.

Scandinavian Volunters Sought

Kaitlin Thompson, of the Fort Bend County Museum, is looking for volunteers. The Museum has a program called “Playing in the Past” where they play in different time periods with their younger museum visitors. This month they are focusing on Disney’s Frozen. Although Frozen is fictional, it is believed to take place somewhere in Scandinavia, most likely Norway, in approximately the mid 1800s. As a result they are doing bits of Scandinavian folklore, history, and crafts.  The Museum  is looking for people that would be willing to come out to their location -- 500 Houston Street in Richmond, Texas -- to showcase primarily traditional clothing, but anything else they would want to share as well! The Museum would love to show true traditional clothing to contrast with the fictionalized version seen in the movie.

If you are available and would like to volunteer, contact Kaitlin Thompson (Educational Outreach, Fort Bend County Museum) at (281)342-6478 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Friends of Lucia

As everyone knows, Continental Airlines is no more (and, as a result, we have lost our sponsor of Lucia's airfare from Houston to Sweden). Thus, it becomes incumbent upon the members of the Club to step up and donate to support the long-standing tradition of the Club of sending its Lucia to Sweden. A number of sponsorship levels are available:
