Welcome to the American club of Sweden!
We’ve been around for 100 years. Our staying power comes through our purpose: to bring people together. Americans. Swedes. Or anyone interested in either country. To create platforms for advancing ideas. Or sharing interests. Both online and in person. Join us.
On Sunday, February 3rd (and into the morning of February 4th!) members of The American Club of Sweden and American Chamber of Commerce in Sweden will be watching the big game at Hard Rock Cafe near Odenplan. Price for the tickets is 395 SEK/person. The ticket entitles you to a buffet served from 20:00 to 22:00. However if you just want to watch the game there is free entry after 23:00.
The American Club of Sweden is proud to host Mark S. Weiner, Fulbright Uppsala University Distinguished Chair in American Studies, as he guides us through key sections of the foundational document of the United States. Participants will each receive a pocket copy of the Constitution. Beverages and light fare will be served.
Event is February 12th, but please register before Feb 6th.
Everyone is welcome.
Poem: When Giving Is All We Have
We give because someone gave to us.
We give because nobody gave to us.
We give because giving has changed us.
We give because giving could have changed us.
We have been better for it,
We have been wounded by it—
Giving has many faces: It is loud and quiet,
Big, though small, diamond in wood-nails.
Its story is old, the plot worn and the pages too,
But we read this book, anyway, over and again:
Giving is, first and every time, hand to hand,
Mine to yours, yours to mine.
You gave me blue and I gave you yellow.
Together we are simple green. You gave me
What you did not have, and I gave you
What I had to give—together, we made
Something greater from the difference.
