Spring Ting in Philadelphia
American Swedish Historical Museum's annual fundraising event, Spring Ting, raised over $30,000 for the museum on May 3. Sweden's Ambassador Björn Lyrvall, was the special guest for the evening.
Spring Ting followed the arrival of May's Valborg celebration on April 30 at the museum. Guests at the Valborg celebration enjoyed hot dogs, cake and coffee while listening to traditional Swedish songs from the Museum Choir and, of course, watching a lively bonfire in front of the stately museum building. The next big Swedish celebration will be June 6, Sweden's National Day. For more info, see www.americanswedish.org
