On Sunday March 5th we celebrate Fastelavn/Shrovetide in Terrell Mill Park in East Cobb.

Thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate with us. It was a joy seeing all of the kids dressed up, this year we had many young princesses. The kids made crafts, played on the playground and of course the highlight was "slå katten af tønde" hit the pinata which was filled with lots of candy. We crowned a king and queen and prizes were given out for best customs. A Big thank you to Annegrete Enwright and Stine Klausen for planning this year’s fun

Dear members,

We are very happy with the participation in the events we had arranged in 2016, but we have one recurring problem. We need help.

All events are run by very few people who end up spending significant amounts of time on preparing and executing these events. We would like to ask you who out there would sign up to help on the upcoming events of 2017. You do not have to worry about starting with nothing if you sign up. We have done this many times before and there will be plenty of guidance from the different board and

Denmark was represented at the Atlanta Nations cup soccer in the street charity tournament July 2.
The team was sponsored by DSV Air & Sea, Select Sport America, Castleberry Hills and Lars Hansen.



The Help Soccer in the Streets send a group of young leaders to France for streetfootballworld’s annual festival alongside a global network of fellow nonprofit soccer groups. Proceeds from the event will assist the Atlanta-based grassroots organization in reaching at-risk youth with more opportunities and training through soccer.

We want to thank our Danish Team for bringing their "A" game"on this very hot Saturday.
The team tied with Korea, lost against

Recently Carsten Rosendahl facilitated a meeting between  the Danish American Chamber of Commerce and the German American Chamber of Commerce. We discussed the possibility of letting DACC members participate in events in the German forum. They are much bigger than we are and therefore have more resources to arrange interesting events.

They welcomed the idea and we can from now on individually sign up for their events. Payment is everyone’s own responsibility. To view upcoming events for GACC  please visit their website and remember to click on Atlanta to see events for Atlanta - click here 

 

on June 25 we we celebrated Sct. Hans at the Hagensen's resident in Sandy Springs. Despite the temperature reaching over 100 degrees we had another successful event with over 95 members participating.
This year we had a petting zoo which was a  great surprise for the children. The 2 week old pigs were the favorites.
We enjoyed  Danish hotdogs and burgers , had a visit by an ice cream truck and made snobrod by the fire pit before the lightning of the big bonfire.
This event would not be the same without all of our sponsors. A big thank you to DSV for sponsoring the Ice

If you are a golfer and would like to play in a golf tournament we urge you to send an email to Poul Sorensen at pouljs@gmail.com.

The email should include your name and phone number.  Please feel free to invite non- DACC members to play as well.

Paul will generate a "Golf List" and  be your point of contact for this event.

On Sunday April 24,  40 DACC members gathered at Evernex for our Spring Film Event.

Snacks and drinks were served before the showing of the movie "All Inclusive”. From the laughter heard through out the movie I would say that we all enjoyed this Danish comedy. It you haven't seen the movie it can be highly recommended.

After the movie, Gitte gave us a tour of the beautiful Evernex office complex.

 Steen and Gitte Hagensen had prepared a delicious dinner of grilled chicken, roasted red potatoes and vegetables, complimented by a Greek salad. 

 A  BIG THANK YOU  goes out to  Gitte and Steen

Members of DACC visited Atlanta's High Museum of Art on March 18 for an evening of Danish and Danish inspired paintings and Friday Night Jazz, followed by Thai dinner.
 
High Museum docent Mary Nell Graham had put together a tour of works by European impressionist and post-impressionist painters, all late 19th to early 20th century, some with Danish connections. The most important painting was Vilhelm Kyhn's beautiful "Girl at the Window" (1870), newly acquired by The High and the only Kyhn painting on public display in the United States (see photograph). Ms. Graham expertly compared Kyhn's painting with another girl at

The scholarships are earmarked for Danish families, living outside Denmark, who may need financial support for signing their children up to online Danish language instruction.

Danes Worldwide - a nonprofit support association for Danes living abroad - offers Danish language instruction at the school level (grades 0 to 9) for students aged 6-17 who live outside Denmark.  The instructional program is flexible and fits easily into the students' day to day attendance at school where they live.

For the 2016/2017 program, we have received sponsorships from foundations and private sources to enable six students to attend the program at no charge.  The
