Dear Members & Friends,

Charlotte NordstjernanWhen far away from home, national traditions and celebrations take on added meaning. At SACC-SF/SV we host a number of cultural events throughout the year, from Midsummer Celebrations, to Crayfish Parties and Christmas Luncheons, which offer Swedish expatriates and Swedish-Americans a way of coming together, building personal relationships and celebrating their Swedish roots.

On June 21, the Swedish-American Chamber of Commerce cordially invites everyone Swedish or Swedish at heart to a Midsummer picnic at Sveadal. Enjoy a carefree day with friends and family; dance around the maypole; sing and feast on delicious traditional midsummer nibbles and take part in Sveadal’s 120th midsummer celebration.

On June 5, the Embassy of Sweden in the United States “Sweden on the Road” tour kicks-off its visit to San Francisco with a SACC-SF/SV sponsored seminar on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) agreement. Join us to learn about the many opportunities the TTIP will bring to entrepreneurs in the Bay Area! As part of the Sweden on the Road tour, we also invite you to join us at the National Day Picnic on June 5th, the National Day Concert on June 6th, and the IKEA Family Fun Day on June 7th.

I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming cultural events!

Charlotte Danielsson
Chairwoman SACC-SF/SV
