The Scandinavian Club of Hawaii

The Club was chartered in 1935, with the mission to further the social and recreational interests of the Scandinavian community in Hawaii through cultural celebrations and festivities, and to promote the exchange of ideas for the development of understanding and mutual benefit between Hawaii and greater Scandinavia and organizes and presents the Midsommer Festival, the Fish Fry, and the Santa Lucia Festival. The Hawaii Scandinavian community reflects a myriad of contributions, from enterprising and significant businessmen of Hawaii, such as the founders of Kekaha Sugar Company and Matson Navigation Company, to the many achievements in commerce and engineering, which lay the foundation for the production and transportation of agricultural products. The Scandinavian Club of Hawaii's mission is carried on by its club officers and directors.
