APRIL TGIF SERIES
*TGIF DINNER & SPEAKER* Series
TGIF dinner & speaker for Friday, April 26, 2019 will feature Otto Christensen, who will speak on the Royal Danish Navy Captain Jens Munk, who searched for the Northwest Passage in 1619. Barely surviving a traumatic winter in today’s Churchill and a heroic return trip over the North Atlantic Ocean, he found himself thrown in jail and discovered his wife had found a new lover.
The presentation will explore the story of this Danish-Manitoban connection and how it will be observed in Canada 400 years later. It will feature story telling, video-segments, PowerPoint slides, and readings from the Journal of Jens Munk - first published 1624 in Copenhagen.
Doors open at 5:30 pm, dinner starting at 6 pm, followed by the speaker at 7:15 pm.
Cost is $17.50/per person.
