The Ad Hoc Roundtable spent its valuable hour together last Monday talking about the many accomplishments of Svensk Hyllningsfest 2017. We also brainstormed ways to refine the festival for 2019, which is the community's sesquicentennial year.
We made a list to be shared with the Hyllningsfest Committee, an all-volunteer group that weaves festival planning into their work and family lives over two years. We thank everyone on this committee, sincerely. We thank the hundreds of volunteers who had a hand in the festival in so many ways.
We encourage you to look back at the 2017 festival, too, and jot down strengths and weaknesses as you experienced them or heard about them. Then brainstorm new features, reinventions or possible solutions for the committee to consider.
To share ideas with the committee, please direct emails to co-chairmen John Hawk (JHawk@maswu.org) and Eric Lundstrom (email@example.com). This way, all ideas get into the stream of discussions.
