SIRC 2007 Xmas Dinner & Fundraiser


SIRC members and their guests got together on the 13th December at our new locale, Hotel Hellsten, to socialize and enjoy a modest yet well prepared and good tasting Swedish Julbord (Xmas Table). 

As the event was also a fundraiser on behalf of an aid project supporting a Social Centre in St. Petersburg, Russia which our club has been involved in for some time we took the opportunity to invite Birgitta Westerberg from The Susanne Westerbergs Memorial Fund to tell participants more about the project and to give an update on future plans. Birgitta explained to us that the proceeds of the evening’s fund raiser would go towards providing a Xmas party for the children attending the Social Centre.
