Our organization is called the Ozark Scandinavian Society of Springfield Missouri. We meet February, March, April, May, September, October, and November. Meetings for the spring of 2014 will be held in the Story Room at the Library Center on South Campbell at 6:30PM on the third Thursday of each month with the April meeting being on the fourth Thursday. The fall meetings will change to the third Monday of each month. We have a very short business meeting followed by a program about one of the Nordic countries, or a program about Scandinavia of interest to all. The program is followed by good Scandinavian sweets and coffee, and good fellowship. We would like to invite you to one of our meetings.
If you think you would be interested, please contact OSSSM at the email address below. Or, if you like, just come to a meeting. Try to arrive a little early, and meet the members.
In June, as close to the summer solstice as possible, we have our Midsummer Fest. There is a Smörgasbord, with food prepared by our members. Smörgåsbord is followed by programs of interest to all.
In December, as close to December 13, the traditional start of Swedish Christmas season, we have our Julfest. There is a Smörgåsbord followed by our Santa Lucia program, followed by programs of interest to all.
To enrich the lives of our members with the charm and beauty of the Scandinavian culture and to increase interest in and knowledge of our Scandinavian heritage, including Denmark, Iceland, Finland, Norway, and Sweden.
