Christmas Party 2017 – You are Invited!

Annual Christmas Party, updated October 26th 2017


2013-12-14-15.40.23Christmas Party 2017

The Scandinavian American Club (SAC) Christmas Party will take place on Saturday, December 2nd, 2017, at St. Mark’s Church in Madison (same venue as last year). Please mark the day in your calendar.

We will e-mail a regular invitation later with more specific information about time, suggestions for dishes to bring, etc. We will also in a later e-mail provide info on how to sign up to volunteer to help with different tasks related to or at the party. If you are interested in knowing more about the typical food we eat during Scandinavian Christmas please click here!

We will also in a later e-mail provide information on how to sign up to volunteer to help with different tasks related to the party. As a rather small organization we always appreciate your help in making these parties possible.

The last two years we have had about 105 guests and the house has been essentially full. Because of that, we plan to limit the number of guests to 105 (on a first signup basis), so it will be important to RSVP as soon as possible to the regular later email invitation in order to get a ticket.

If you want to be included in our email list-serv and receive an email about the Christmas Party, please send and email to: madisonsac at gmail.com
