SWEDISH CLUB OF SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA

Dear Members,

It is with deep regret we announce the passing of our long time member Harold Carlson. He and his wife Isabel (2013) were active members since 1986. Harold was membership chairman from 1991-2013. Harold recently celebrated his 100th birthday.

Harold, known as "The Swede" during the Korean War was a celebrated Naval officer. He is survived by his 5 children and 8 grandchildren. Condolences can be sent to his daughter: Elisabeth Sluser, 1525 Criquet Court, Concord, CA 94581.

I have been told that Sveadal cannot open this summer. Santa Clara County has closed Croy Road to all but residents and they are trying to minimize traffic over the single damaged lane that remains. It is still an active slide and repairs cannot begin until the rain stops and the land dries out.

The Midsummer celebration has been relocated to Saratoga Springs on June 24, and we encourage you to join us there! More details will be available soon on the www.sveadal.org website.

The board members are actively working on a wine tasting event at La Nebbia Winery in Half Moon Bay on May 10th. More information to come.
Looking forward to see you at the spring dinner on April 12!

Lisa Duff-Stiles
