Christmas 2014

Danish Club Members, Friends and former members:

It’s hard to believe Thanksgiving is just around the corner so it’s high time we think about our Julefest.

Everyone seemed to be happy with last year’s event so we will go ahead and do a repeat performance. The date will be Sunday December 21st at Walton Lake Sports Complex and Clubhouse again. We will plan to eat around 1:30 to allow for churchgoers to get there and get home again before dark.

The cost of the function will be $5 for each member family to at least partially cover the cost of the rental of the facility. You may bring guests at $5 a piece. Each participating family/guest should bring a portion of the meal. Below are our suggested lunch items from which to choose.

1. Rugbrød (Danish rye bread, both regular and whole grain)
2. Franksbrød (French sliced bread)
3. Smør and margarine (butter and margarine)
4. Leverpostej (liver pate)
5. Sild (almindelig of i karrysovs) (herring both regular and in curry sauce
6. Fridedeller (Danish meat balls)
7. Rødkål (red cabbage)
8. Cooked salmon
10 Medisterpølse (Danish sausage).
11. Potatoes (if we have pork and sausage)
12. Skinke i skiver (sliced ham)
13. Roast Beef i skiver (sliced roast beef)
14. Svinekam (loin of pork)
15. Rejer (shrimp for sandwiches)
16. Salat (salad and dressing)
17. Ost (Cheeses)
15. Pålægschocolade (chocolate for sandwiches)
16. Desserts

As you sign up, please indicate which item(s) you would like to bring. When we determine the number of attendees we might have to make adjustments to your selection. We ask that you bring enough to feed your family plus 5 additional members. We also ask that you bring your items “table ready” along with any required serving utensils.

If you would like to drink anything other than water, iced tea or coffee please feel free to bring that as well. We will have ice,plastic cups and hot cups.

We estimate that we will start to eat around 1:30 p.m. Around 3:00 p.m. we will then sing the traditional Danish and English Christmas carols and dance around the tree, followed by clean up. We will not be taking the tree down until after the new year.

In order to get some idea of the size of the group attending we ask that you respond as quickly as possible as to whether or not you might or will not be attending. You then have until Dec. 10th to get your checks in. If there is a particular food that you want to sign up for let me know that up front as well.

Reservations and checks should be in by December 10, 2013 and sent to Lissi Ewees. .

**********************************************************************************

I have been contacted by a Lutheran pastor that Hanne Heymann has passed away. Some of you might remember her and her husband Hans from quite a few years back. Being there is no family in the US the pastor is arranging for an estate sale to sell most of their belongings. I was asked if any of the Danes in Richmond might be interested in looking at the many books, christmas plates, furniture, etc. before the estate sale. I would like to go and look so if anybody else is interested in arranging for a showing we can find a convenient time. Call Lissi 379-6214

*************************************************************************************
