The next TGIF Buffet Dinner/Speaker will be held on April 28th 2017. Presentation: The Friðrika Björnsdóttir Memorial Restoration Project” Hosted by Salín Guttormsson and As It Happened Productions/Sponsored by the Icelandic Consulate.
What’s all the fuss about New Icelander Friðrika Björnsdóttir Árnason? (1849-1884) Is there anything to the legend that she is related to King Friðrik VI of Denmark? Why was she buried at her homestead near Riverton, Manitoba and not in a cemetery? Why honour and document her journey now, 132 years later?
Join us for a presentation by Salín Guttormsson, Project Lead (and a great-granddaughter of Friðrika) and As It Happened Productions (documentary producers) for the answers, to learn more about the Canada150 July 1, 2017 Dedication and Unveiling Ceremony and to find out whether you, too, might have “royal lineage”!
