A blog about Lindsborg

Welcome to Lindsborg Town Talk, your source for news about upcoming events and activities in Lindsborg.

Unwrap the Magic of Lindsborg, our six-week holiday and Christmas celebration continues today with a wide variety of events throughout town.

3 Lindsborg Bed and Breakfasts will host holiday open houses today from 2 to 5pm.

The Rosberg House, Seasons of the Fox and the Swedish Country Inn are all participating.

The Rosberg House, at 103 E. State, will feature Davin Olson on the Nyckleharpa and will serve holiday treats.

At the Seasons of the Fox, 505 N. 2nd, pianist Genevieve Bishop will be playing Christmas music and visitors can enjoy peppermint ice cream, hot cider and cookies.

The Swedish Country Inn will feature the woodwind trio, Trablas. Personalized chocolate Dala Horses, gingerbread men and Christmas tree ornaments will be available, plus there will be a spritz cookie demonstration.

Tomorrow, Sunday December 21st, the Messiah Lutheran Church will hold their annual Christmas Candlelight Service at 7pm. The candle light service is the last event of the church’s 100th anniversary year and the choir is planning a very special program. There is no admission fee and guests are invited to stay for coffee and refreshments following the service.

Bethany Lutheran Church invites the community to three special Christmas services. The Christmas Eve service is on Wednesday at 10pm. This is a quiet, meditative candlelight service with Holy Communion. Julotta, which means early Christmas Morning, will be held on Thursday at 6am. The Annandag Jul service is Friday at 10am, and will be conducted in Swedish, with an English interpretation.

On a personal note, this is my last scheduled broadcast of Lindsborg Town Talk. I appreciate the opportunity I had to share activities in Lindsborg with all of the listeners of this program.

For the last time, this is Mike Rodriquez with Lindsborg Town Talk.
