Kalmar Nyckle: The Forgotten Journey
at HOUSE of SWEDEN
2900 K Street NW, Washington DC
For our February meeting, Drott Lodge will take advantage of our location and access to events sponsored by the Swedish Embassy by going on a field trip to House of Sweden in Georgetown for a free screening of a new documentary about the 17th century ship which brought the first Swedish settlers to the New Sweden Colony in 1638. This screening is in anticipation of a Drott Lodge outing in August 2017 for a sailing from Lewes, DE on the reproduction ship which was launched in 1997. If you are interested in participating in this summer day trip, please email Marit Knollmueller at firstname.lastname@example.org, so we can keep you informed of all the details.
