Swedesburg's Midsummer celebration
Swedesburg’s Swedish Heritage Society hosted its 27th annual Midsummer in Swedesburg celebration Tuesday night. The event not only honors the community’s Swedish population but the longest day of the year. Attendees danced around the majstang. Julie Nelson gave the history of the honored family — Adolph Frederick and Anna Carlson Wahlin (now known as Woline). Featured musicians were Ellinor Fritz, violin, and Leonor Palazzo, cello, from Aspeboda, Dalarna, Sweden. Some of the descendants of Frederick and Wahlin gathered for a family photo.
