With friends and family we will celebrate the traditional Danish Holiday Event, Sommer Solstice, at beautiful Azalea Park located in Roswell. Surrounded by mother nature, we will bbq, sing, and meet. There will further be fun games for the kids.

We will provide burgers, hotdogs, and "snobrød". There are lots of picnic tables and chairs available. Drinks and cups are bring your own (BYO). Unfortunately we are not allowed to have a bonfire, but this only means that we will sing the midsummer song louder and celebrate more! No alcoholic beverages and glass container are allowed

It was an honored to have the National Danish Performance team visit Atlanta for the 2nd time. Here is a recap of their visit to Atlanta by Gitte Hagensen

The National Danish Performance Team arrived in Athens, GA at 7 pm on Monday, February 21 after a 13 hour ride from Miami. 27 young top athletes from Denmark jumped out of the mini-vans, sporting big smiles and great attitudes - and so did their 5-person support team, headed by manager, Lene Bruun.
The group was quickly introduced to their host families - and off they went to the next home away

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 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.

We want to thank our Danish Team for bringing their "A" game"on this very hot Saturday.

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
