Forever Swedish

För Alltid Svensk

Amery Swedish Club

 

About Us:  Amery Swedish Club is made up of a group of folks in Northwestern Wisconsin of Swedish heritage or birth or with an interest in all things Swedish. We meet monthly and study history and culture, foods, language, genealogy, music, art, literature and Swedish traditions. This website is a place for members to review our events and pictures, read the newsletter, get a recipe, or check out information about upcoming events.

Swede Hollow in St Paul MN

Avenir Light is a clean and stylish font favored by designers. It's easy on the eyes and a great go-to font for titles, paragraphs & more.

Some other books to consider

It is our hope to begin this fall/winter the "Forever Swedish Book Club" that will meet virtually at least for now (To meet in person when Covid is under control.)

We have a few interested folks ---we would like to have a few more and let us know what books or authors  you would like to read and discuss.

For our first book we are suggesting Swede Hollow by Ola Larsmo translated from the Swedish by

Tiina Nunnally let us know if you have interest and what days and times would work for you.

 

from the forward:
Emigrant Contract

Between C.W. Hallstrom,authorized immigrant agent in Goteborg and the emigrants listed below.

I C.W. Hallstrom, do bind myself herewith, in the manner detailed below, to convey from Goteborg to New York in North America the Klar family, consisting of five persons, in return for an already fully paid and received fee of 118 Swedish kronor, which includes, upon arrival in America, the usual disembarkation fees.

A Film to consider for those cold winter nights ahead.

It’s the mid 1930s and brakeman Kvist had enough of working on the train, jumps off and starts to walk on the train tracks in the middle of nowhere in Lapland, Northern Sweden, hoping to find new work and adventures. Based on the novella by famous Swedish author Eyvind Johnson.

And then some Carl Larsson

Because of Covid our group has been on hiatus since March of 2020---as we are now vaccinated we are slowly returning to regular activities. August we are invited to a tour and picnic pot luck dinner at the Karl Oskar House at Kitchie Saga Park in Lindstrom Minnesota. On September 9th we are planning to hold our annual Pea Soup and Pancake supper at the Clear Lake Park from 6 to 8 PM. More information to follow for each of these events. 

So for the present we have our memories which should carry us through until we make some new ones.

Below are a some film clips, a few that are long and also shorter ones, items from our events & presentations at club meetings-and a film I made about Nordic Noir (Swedish mystery films and books and their authors)--with the exception of Nordic Noir, all are things I recorded over the last few years at Swedish Club. Our club is always busy and I try to keep a photograph and film record as we go along. So now is good time to tackle a trip down memory lane while we are all staying safe at home.
