From SACHF President
Though my Norwegian roots came to me dimly via our church and family in San Francisco, I do appreciate the involvement of Norwegian-Americans in SACHF and our ScanCenter.
What a treat to watch the "Little Vikings" when they gather at the ScanCenter! And to note the significance of the Norwegian language class also at the ScanCenter.
The sight of Norwegian attire and the tempting appeal of the scent and taste of the "Viking Dogs" certainly adds to the ambiance of the Scandinavian Festival at Cal Lutheran in April for thousands of visitors.
To that specific ethnic impact in SACHF, we add the Swedish language class, the Nordic Spirit Symposium and the educational continuity of our weekly Brown-Bag Lunches.
As support for our spreading Scandinavian presence, we also offer an array of art and artifacts in our ScanCenter museum as well as hundreds of books in our library.
This combination contributes to our mission to "preserve and promote Scandinavian Heritage and Culture in the Southwestern United States for the education and enjoyment of present and future generations."
P.S.: Thanks for the E-News support from the SACHF Communications Team--Board members Richard Londgren and Eric Renn.
