Remember When?

Daily Press file photo Nobel Swenson, of Gladstone, was the only surviving member of the original 19 who founded the Gladstone Swedish Club in 1934 when this photo was taken in 1988. Although the name Gladstone Swedish Club remained, the membership in 1988 included other Scandinavians and was almost equally drawn from Gladstone, Escanaba, and the Rapid-River Ensign area. The club’s annual Mid-sommar celebration took place June 25 that year.
