Celebration and Remembering Helen Fosdick

July 27 @ 1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

King and Queen of Sweden at the Karl Oskar House’s dedication in 1996

All are invited to attend a “Celebration and Remembering Helen” gathering at the Karl Oskar House on Saturday, July 27th at 1:30pm. Helen Fosdick was a long time resident of “Fridhem” the historic house on South Lindstrom Lake. In the early 1970’s  Helen was hired by Superintendent Don Bungum to teach Spanish and American History at Chisago Lakes High School. Swedish was added as a course at Chisago Lakes and Helen went on to nurture many students until her retirement . She taught the Swedish language to adults at night, was an active member of the local Swedish Club and coached the young Swedish dancers. In 1996 Helen served as a hostess when the King and Queen of Sweden visited the Karl Oskar House for it’s dedication.  In 1999 Helen moved to California to be near her daughter and grandsons. Helen was active on social media and maintained many of the relationships that began here.  She celebrated her 100th birthday last year (really celebrated) and passed away earlier this year. Helen’s daughter Tori would love to visit with people who knew her mom and share their remembrances.  Please join us on July 27th for memories and FIKA at the Karl Oskar House on Glader Blvd In Lindstrom.
