MAY 2021
In June we celebrate Sweden’s national day. Last year we celebrated by taking part in the Embassy’s virtual program. This year we are looking forward to celebrating in person again. However, different times call for a different type of celebration and this year’s celebration will have a more casual feel as we are hosting it at a large brewery on Atlanta's westside. This will allow us to spread out both inside and outside. As always Sweden Day is a great way to connect with other Swedes and we are thrilled that a trio from SWEA will lead us in singing the Swedish national anthem this year. Our event takes place on June 7 and we are looking forward to seeing our members and providing an opportunity for networking in person again! 

On Sweden’s national day we reflect on all things Swedish that we are proud of. In 2020 Sweden topped the list of the global sustainability index. Sustainability is important to our newest SACC sponsor WoodAble. WoodAble utensils are 100% wood and made of Chilean poplar and pine. Each spoon, fork, and knife is stamped, thermo-formed, and then turbo-polished for 4-6 hours by skilled workers. We highly appreciate Woodable’s support of our chamber.
This time of year Swedes abroad are planning trips back home for the summer. The Embassy of Sweden in Washington DC recently hosted a town hall where they answered questions on topics such a passports and travel restrictions. If you missed it and have questions please visit their website for their contact information.

Swedish National Day Celebration
It's time to say "Hej" to warmer weather, great beer and good vibes! Come celebrate with us on June 7 at 5:30 p.m. as we ring in the summer!

Swedish National Day looks a little different this year! Join us for an evening of good beer, good friends and a good time. This is SACC-GA's first in-person event in 2021. The brewery is reserved for this event only which allows us to space out both indoors and outdoors.

Have a beer and light refreshments on us!
We are excited to see you in person again and to raise a glass for Sweden.
