Scandinavian festivities, gingerbread houses and Toys ‘n Joy are coming to Mercer Island from 12:30-3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10.

The event will be at the Mercer Island United Methodist Church, 7070 SE 24th St., and there will be free parking in the back of the church.

Cascade Lodge Sons of Norway is asking the community and all affiliate lodges to help us support the Salvation Army’s Toys ‘n Joy Program, to collect toys and gifts for children in need. Please bring a new, unwrapped gift or toy for children ages 6 months to 14 years. Cash donations are also accepted and will be given to the Salvation Army representative at the party.

Join us for a fun holiday party with free children’s activities and family fun, complete with live music by the popular group Skandia Kappel and Bjarne Jacobson! Scandinavian dancing, Santa Lucia and a fun audience-participation skit called “The Littlest Jul Bok,” Christmas songs, a visit from Santa, the Toys n’ Joys Drive, a cookie potluck and more. The event is open to the public.

For more information or to participate as a volunteer, call Leiann Ronnestad at 425-313-0193, email Info@CascadeLodge.org or visit www.CascadeLodge.org.
