We’re going back to our roots this July! Join us for the next Best of Times event, hosted by Edgewood Communities, on Thursday, July 13. The free history themed event will feature a presentation on Swedish immigration to the Jamestown area. Our speaker, Julie Lindblom Boozer Ph.D., will be discussing:

  • Where in the Jamestown area did the first Swedish immigrants settle?
  • What brought Swedish immigrants to the Jamestown area?
  • What social support did Swedish immigrants receive in the Jamestown Area?
  • The history behind and a preview of this year’s Scandinavian folk Festival

Plus much more! Light refreshments are provided so RSVP is requested. Call 716-720-9122 with your name and total number in your group. The presentation will begin promptly at 6:30 p.m. so be sure to arrive early to grab your seat(s)!
