Whereas the Nordic Heritage Museum has for nearly four decades shared Nordic culture with people of all ages and backgrounds by exhibiting art and objects and by providing educational and cultural experiences to the local community and visitors from across the continent and beyond.

Whereas the Nordic Heritage Museum has pioneered pan-Nordic unity and cultural cohesiveness, a model that others may share.

Whereas the Nordic Heritage Museum is currently creating a new center that will be a place to explore the universal themes of identity and culture, as well as the Nordic impact on the development of the State of Washington and the entire Northwest Region.

Therefore the Board of Directors of the Swedish Council of America unanimously proclaims its sincerest appreciation, truest recognition and djupaste uppskattning to Nordic Heritage Museum on the
announcement of its new center.
