December Christmas Meeting

December 4, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:30 pm


The Monthly Meeting Committee has the pleasure of inviting you to the traditional Christmas meeting.

According to tradition, we are planning a raffle this year, so we ask each member to please bring a small, wrapped gift. The proceeds of the raffle this year will be donated to Fattighuset.

Fattighuset is a charitable self-help organization that considers all humans as potential resources for society. Its target group are people who struggle financially, who are lonely, on welfare, pensioners, jobless or homeless. The organization runs a clothing bank, a food bank, hairdressers, laundry rooms, and bathrooms with showers, a canteen, and a library.

Its main outlet is located in Grønlandsleiret in old Oslo.

This year, we are happy to have Murni Surbakti join us. She is a wonderful singer from Bali, Indonesia, who has been singing in Asia, Australia, Europe and the United States. Murni sings folk songs, pop, jazz, blues, bossanova and Samba. She moved to Oslo in 2019.

At our Christmas meeting, Murni will sing evergreen favorites by Frank Sinatra, Louis Armstrong and Beatles, among others. There will also be a singalong with Christmas Carols.

Refreshments will be served after the music: assorted Norwegian open sandwiches (snitter), wine, mineral water, coffee, tea and cakes.

We ask our members to kindly be seated by 18:00.

Looking forward to a convivial and festive evening with friends!
