From Jan Fau: Come join us for the 90th annual reunion of the Texas Swedish Pioneers Association at Palm Valley Lutheran Church in Round Rock.

Sun, June 24, 2007 | Palm Valley Lutheran Church in Round Rock

2:30 PM

The celebration will begin at 2:30 with an organ concert by Dr. Elsworth Peterson, and the meeting starts at 3:00. The Texas Swedish Interest Class from Elgin will sing a number of selections in Swedish and lead the prayer Fader Vår. The traditional annual meeting has been held continuously since 1917, the 50th anniversary of the arrival of the first large group of 100 Swedes who came to Texas in 1867 from Småland. After the program, there will be refreshments, visitation, and exchange of memories in the church hall. The association has no formal membership; anyone interested in Swedish heritage is invited and urged to attend.
