Report from the Board - Autumn 2018
Autumn Report 2018
We had our combined Pandekager and Andespil on May 13th with approximately 40 people in attendance. Several of our Board members were away for this event so some new faces picked up the fallen torch and carried on to make this event very successful. Thanks to all our pandekager bakers for a delicious lunch and a special thanks to Tommy Johansen for interrupting his weekend plans to call the Bingo numbers.
Our Sankt Hans Celebration was held at Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park on June 23rd and was very well attended. This year, we teamed up with the local lodge of the Sons of Norway to host the event jointly, with a total of 112 people attending (about 50% from each club). It was a huge crowd to gather around one bonfire, and the weather turned out great. In previous years, we have had about 35 to 65 attendees, so this year's crowd was almost overwhelming! It is a great event because it attracts a lot of younger members and youngsters that don't typically attend our other functions. The venue worked out so well (again) that we have booked the site for next year on the same date.
Our next two events are the Harvest Party on Sunday, October 14th and Æbleskiver & Andespil Afternoon on Sunday, November 4th. See you there! Mark your calendar and plan now to bring your friends and family and make this event a big success! Thanks to Lena and Vibeke for their delicious baked goods!
We are very saddened to report that three of our members have passed away. Lars Christensen, Alf Hansen and Karl Sorensen.
