The mission of the nonprofit Astoria Scandinavian Heritage Association, formed in 2011, is to preserve traditional Scandinavian culture and heritage through educational opportunities. Its primary activity has been to support the Scandinavian Midsummer Festival, but now the group’s focus is on building a Scandinavian Heritage Park; drawings and details of the design proposal can be found online astoriascanpark.org
Fundraising for the park has begun, and ASHA can receive check donations only at P.O. Box 34, Astoria, OR 97103. Donors should write “Park” on the memo line, and will receive a tax receipt.
