Treasured in many Swedish homes, the Dala Horse has become a symbol of the Swedish province of Dalarna and of all Sweden.
Come back to the 1600s with us as SAHSWI member John Elliott traces this colorful wooden horse from the beginnings to its present status in Sweden. Over the years, horses have appeared in different colors and new siblings (roosters and pigs) have been added to the family.

Any Dala horses, roosters and pigs in your home are invited to attend the meeting with you for show and tell.

Come and stay for fika after the presentation! Our brief annual meeting with review of the past year and plans for the year to come will be followed by our program and coffee hour.

Redemption Lutheran Church is near Hwy. 100, just north of Capitol Dr. near Milwaukee in Wauwatosa
