Our organization is called the Ozark Scandinavian Society of Springfield Missouri. We meet February, March, April, May, September, October, and November. Meetings are currentlybeing held in the Story Room at the Library Center on South Campbell at 6:30PM. (See dates below.) We have a short business meeting followed by a program about one of the Nordic countries, or a program about Scandinavia. 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 entertainment and a procession around the Maypole.
In December, as close to December 13 as possible, the traditional start of Swedish Christmas season, we have our Julfest. There is a Smörgåsbord followed by entertainment and a Santa Lucia procession for the youngsters.
