June is particularly welcome, because here in Scandinavia, June 1st is the first day of summer. Happy summer to all! There are a couple of days to particularly mark this month. Father’s Day. Note that Father’s Day is June 5th in Denmark, but is June 20th in the USA and the UK. Get your cards, letters and presents ready!
Then there’s Skt. Hans Aften on Wednesday, June 23rd. Of course, celebrations around town will be affected by current Corona restrictions so be sure to look them up. Days are warmer, restrictions are loosening, but let’s keep our guard up. Continue to review the current Corona situation and restrictions… in English… on this site: https://en.coronasmitte.dk/. You will want to enjoy the season!
Here are some new suggestions for June 2021:

  • Have you read the latest issue of FAWCO’s magazine, “Inspiring Women”? It just came out on May 20th. The theme of this issue is Women and Wellness. AWC Denmark’s own Brenda Nielsen is featured with an article on sleep. See pages 26-27.  In addition, Mary Stewart Burgher contributed an article on Winter Bathing. See page 64. https://www.yumpu.com/en/document/read/65608060/inspiring-women-magazine-may-2021
  • Follow, check in daily and contribute to our Facebook page, AWC Denmark Coffeeshop. There’s lots of humor, ideas, information on activities and announcements to be found here.

  • Explore the FAWCO website. There’s something for everyone. Under Global Issues… the green color category… you find the FAWCO subcommittees on Education, Environment, Health, Human Rights, the Target Program and Youth Programs. https://www.fawco.org/global-issues
  • Need help, yourself? Someone to talk to? Contact us at AWC.
  • Telecommunicate with family and friends via phone and computer. What are these folks doing and experiencing? Maybe you’ve thought about looking up some old friends… why not now? Write good, old-fashioned letters; send them.

 Feel gratitude. We, in Denmark, are still in a privileged situation. What we experience here can give hope to others in more difficult situations.

Stay safe and stay in touch!
