The Scandinavian Centre Thanks Everyone who Came to Cheer with Us!

Over 4,500 peo­ple vis­it­ed Scan­di­navia House, reg­u­lar­ly known as the Scan­di­na­vian Com­mu­ni­ty Cen­tre, took a tour, enjoyed a drink at the Fire­side Lounge, had lunch or din­ner, and watched one of the big screen TV’s. We host­ed var­i­ous roy­al­ty, ambas­sadors and polit­i­cal offi­cials from Den­mark, Fin­land, Nor­way and Swe­den.

We are so proud of all our hun­dreds of olun­teers who logged in over 2,000 hours. They took every­thing in stride work­ing with the TV media, wear­ing Nor­we­gian curl­ing pants, press reporters from around the world, par­ty­ing Vikings with horned hel­mets and var­i­ous dig­ni­taries, all with wel­com­ing smiles, and cheer­ful infor­ma­tion.
