We trust you have had a great summer. Our Sankt Hans Celebration was once again a very big success! We had great weather and a great turn-out and we made sure there was enough food so nobody went home hungry! Everyone had a wonderful evening around the bonfire and it was encouraging to see so many youngsters at this event because they are the future of our Club. As Rathtrevor seems to be an ideal setting, we have booked it again for next year.
The Board met recently to organize our upcoming Fall Events, so mark your calendars for the Harvest Party Event on Sunday October 20th and our Æblerskiver and Andespil Afternoon on Sunday, November 17th. Details are available on our homepage.
As you know, our Club will be hosting the 2020 Danish Federation AGM & Conference next May, and we have been asked to provide some stories (biographies) about Danes in the Nanaimo area to be published in the Heritage Book. Everyone has an interesting story to tell, so please get your pencils (computers) out and write a brief history about your family immigration story. Please include photos that can be scanned if possible. We will be happy to try to work with you to write it up. I will have a few copies of the 2019 Heritage Book ($15 each), so if you would like a copy, let me know. The Heritage Book is funded in part by advertisers, so if you are interested in placing an ad, or have a suggestion for someone we should contact in this regard, please give me a call or drop me an email.
See you at the Harvest Party on October 20th! Be sure to bring your friends for a wonderful Danish meal.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the Board,
- Tom Hedekar, Treasurer
