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.
Join us for the year's first Third Thursday at the Hilton Slussen as we tune out the winter chill and turn up the TROPICAL vibe!
Get in the spirit by wearing your Aloha shirts and tropical attire (optional). First 30 guests receive a flower lei. Tropical special at the bar will be a "Cuban Affair”. Music to fit the occasion.
Third Thursday (or "3T" as regulars call it) is our monthly mixing, mingling and networking event. It is open to anyone with an interest in The American Club of Sweden. It's a great opportunity for those considering membership to get to know our members and learn more about our club. It is held the third Thursday of each month at Hilton Stockholm (Slussen) from 17:30-19:30.
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.
