Program update. Treasured in many Swedish homes, the Dala Horse has become a symbol of the Swedish province of Dalarna and of all Sweden. Come back to the 1600s with us as SAHSWI member John Elliott traces the beginnings of this colorful wooden horse. Over the years, horses have appeared in different colors and new siblings (roosters and pigs) have been added to the family. Any Dala horses, roosters and pigs in your home are invited to attend the meeting with you for show and tell.

Following the Dala Horse presentation the SAHSWI year past and the year to come will be reviewed. After the program stay for the traditional Swedish FIKA.
