Sweden Day is postponed until 2021
Welcome to the Home Page of Sweden Day!
The Sweden Day Committee has decided to cancel our 80th annual Sweden Day celebration at the Manhem Club in the Bronx. This decision was based on the unprecedented impact the Covid-19 virus is having on New York and rest of the world and what we still have to overcome in the coming months.
We WILL see you in 2021!!!!
We are still asking for donations to the T. Edward & Alvalene P. Karlsson Scholarship Fund. The 2020 scholarships will be awarded, and the winners will receive their awards in the mail. (Download Application Here: Scholarship Application 2020 Revised )
