June 2021
Thank you for celebrating Sweden Day in person with us this year! We loved seeing so many new and familiar faces. Thank you to SWEA and the Embassy of Sweden for yet again collaborating on this event with us. We also appreciate the support from our sponsors Arnall Golden Gregory LLP and WoodAble. Without the support of our generous sponsors we would not be able to host these festive events. We are looking forward to seeing many of you again throughout 2021. Our annual Golf Tournament will take place in September and we are hosting our Lucia Gala in December. Sponsorship Opportunities are available for both events.

Many Americans are looking forward to travelling to Sweden again this summer. Following EU's recommendation to lift travel restrictions for Americans, Sweden is opening its borders beginning June 30. For more details please read this information from Sweden.

The Sweden-Ukraine 2020 European Championship, Round of 16 game is shown today at 3 PM on ESPN. Heja Sverige!
