OPEN HOUSE SUNDAY, DECEMBER 4, 2016 2-4PM
Come one and all. We celebrate Christmas, fellowship
and our 110th year as a charitable institution serving
seniors in a uniquely Scandinavian setting. Our Open
House has a dedicated following and you are welcome to
join us. We fill the living room and sing Danish and
English language carols, then have traditional Danish
cookies with longtime and new friends. The Home's
residents, board of directors and employees will be on
hand to help everyone feel at home.

GRUNDLOVDAG! JUNE 4, 2016
We had a wonderful time Saturday, June 4. The weather was
picture perfect, the food and drink delicious, and the music
enjoyable all day long.
Keynote speaker Joan Hentze brought her family, and spoke
eloquently about some of the unique characteristics that
make Denmark the "happiest country on earth."
...one of which might be the beautiful Nimbus motorcycles that
were admired all afternoon.
and Ellen Lindstrom's Swedish Meatballs entertained all day
