Our club season runs from September through May. Some groups have activities in the summer.
The American Women's Club in Stockholm provides a sense of fellowship to Americans living abroad. The club sponsors activity groups, luncheons, holiday activities, museum tours, trips, evening events, and volunteer activities. We offer support groups and a variety of fun activities for our members.
Founded in 1911, the American Women's Club in Stockholm is the second oldest American Women's Club outside the United States. Louise Woods-Beckman and Carrie Chapman Catt were charter members. Cecilia Graves, wife of the American minister in Sweden (there was no such embassy at this time, only a legation) was the first president. Since then, more then 20 women have served as president, among them the legendary Peggy Johnson, Ruth Eldstrom, and Estelle Bernadotte. The first election was held in the Grand Hotel in Stockholm.
The Club sponsors many activities including bridge, book clubs, gourmet cooking, networking, Swedish conversation, luncheons, gala dinners, seminars, dance lessons and museum tours. The different groups in the AWC have been a valuable way for members not only to create their own local support networks but to make life long friends.
Since 1911, we have grown from 16 charter members to over 300. Our membership has fluctuated, individual and global priorities have shifted and have been redefined, but the club and its reasons for existence have remained constant for nearly a century, providing shared warmth, support, fun and motivation to American women and their families living in Sweden.
The 2013 - 2014 AWC Stockholm Jessie Lokrantz Scholarship Foundation application period ran from February 1, 2013 through April 30, 2013. Further questions can be directed to email@example.com.
The Piano Girl Concert was a successful event and a fantastic evening. Robin Meloy Goldsby provided a wonderful evening of piano music and storytelling for approximately 70 guests. We raised 27,000 SEK for the Tabitha Wells Program to bring fresh water to families in Cambodia. This has been FAWCO's selected charity for the past three years. We can boast that we have provided 27 wells x 3 families = 82 families helped! For our success, we have been awarded FAWCO's Platinum Medallion which is only held by a total of eight clubs globally. Our club is being praised by FAWCO for an amazing contribution. Thank you everyone who volunteered during the evening. A special thanks should go to Linda Lewis and Lucy Robertshaw who have worked hard to support me in creating this program for our club. Contact: Michele Day, 0707 48 31 66.
