Canada has the largest ethnic Icelandic population outside of Iceland and Manitoba is home to nearly 1/3 of that population. Our annual “out of town” meeting was planned for The New Iceland Heritage Museum in Gimli on the shores of Lake Winnipeg on September 23, 2017. The day was beautiful and the venue was wonderful. One of the high lights of the morning meeting was the presentation of a Loyalist Certificate to Linda Campbell. Linda proved her descent back to Andrew Cohoe of Thorold Twp., Upper Canada. Her line is strictly Cohoe right up to and including Linda who was born Cohoe. Congratulations Linda!
Bruce Walchuk was thanked for his work on obtaining the new banner for our group. It is very eye catching and also easily transported and set up.
Several people stayed after lunch to tour the museum.
