Drott Lodge will be selling Imported Foods & Gifts at this year's SWEA Christmas Bazaar at the House of Sweden, 2900 K Street, NW, Washington, DC. This is a popular event for the Swedish community in Washington both for the scope of items for sale and the number of people attending. It's a festive event with an impressive variety of vendors of high quality items.
Come join us for our annual Lucia Pageant and Jul Festival that includes dancing around the Christmas tree, a Julbord, craft activities for children, and a visit from the famous Jultomten with his bag of gifts for the young ones.
This year's Lucia is Ava Birdwell, daughter of member Christine Svevar. All children and teens participating in the Lucia should plan to arrive at St. James no later than 2:00 pm. Please meet in the undercroft. One adult from each family group must be available to help with dressing and assist with rehearsal. If you have not yet registered your children for the pageant, please contact Carol Whitley at email@example.com or 202-686-6214 no later than Monday, December 5.
Julbord: Drott Lodge will provide the meatballs, herring, beverages, and desserts. Attendees are asked to bring a side dish or finger food in an amount sufficient to serve their own family/friends group, plus four others. There will be no charge, but donations will be greatly appreciated to subsidize the extra costs.
Please RSVP for the pageant and Julfest by contacting Carol Whitley at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-686-6214. Please provide the number of guides in your group by December 5. Also, please provide the age and gender of any children so we can relay this to Santa.
The Lucia Pageant will begin at 3:00pm in the Sanctuary of St. James' Episcopal Church, 11815 Seven Locks Road, Bethesda, MD. Julfest and activities follow in the undercroft of the church.
