American Union of Swedish Singers (AUSS) Convention

Dearborn, Michigan

June 22-26, 2004

Renewing friendships and making new friends is a wonderful part of the convention. Here we're together with dear friends from Portland, Oregon: Joyce and Don Masters, and Dee Carlson on Tuesday, opening night.

Before the Grand Concert on Friday night - Posing with the directors, accompanist, AUSS president and Flickorna Fem (the other featured performers) and their spouses. All of the women received a bouquet of roses and the men got boutonnieres.

All of us pictured above rode to and from the concert site in style: in a limo. We were treated like royalty.

Ken is posing with those stiff musicians, again! At least they're wearing the AUSS singers' caps!

Grand Banquet on Saturday night.

Sunday morning we had Swedish pancakes at the nearby Swedish Club in Farmington Hills. Here we're posing with the AUSS Director-In-Chief Art Elander from Detroit.
