Brunch and Entertainment Coming to Swedish Heritage Center


Once again the Swedish Heritage Center is buzzing. Sunday, April 12th, we are preparing to serve a delicious breakfast brunch, with an assortment of breakfast casseroles, fruit, juice, nut breads and of coarse Ostakaka for dessert. The brunch will be held at the Swedish Heritage Center in Oakland and the hours are 11:00 till 1:00. A free will donation will be taken for the brunch. Following the brunch we are happy to have back to preform will be Darrel Draper from the Nebraska Department of Humanities. Darrel entertained us last time as the character Teddy Roosevelt. This time he is depicting the character “Peter Sarpy”, who was a pioneer, furtrader and namesake of Sarpy County, Nebr. Darrel is dressed in period costume and speaks in his native French accent. “Peter Sarpy” describes the transformation of Nebraska from a French colony to statehood. This program is also a free will donation. Please mark your calendar to come enjoy and support the Swedish Heritage Center.
We would also like to thank all those who attended our “Frozen” sing a long movie event. The kids had a great time with our lovely Anna, great “Frozen” treats and a variety of crafts. It was great to hear the kids sing their favorite songs from one of the most popular movies.
