SWEDE DAY MIDSOMMAR FESTIVAL

The Grand Mound Rochester Citizen's Group and Chamber of Commerce
present a Family Event on Saturday 17 June 2006 in
Rochester Washington
This year the Community is honoring the return trip of Ezra Meeker in 1852
along the Oregon Trail to Preserve its Legacy.  Imagine a 70 year old man
pulling a covered wagon with a span of oxen in 1906.  Midsommar is our
way of preserving the Scandinavian Heritage of the
Grand Mound Rochester Area.
