50th Anniversary Dinner & Dance

back



On Saturday, April 19, 2008, we celebrated a major milestone at Ingeniørenes Hus in Oslo: Our 50th Anniversary Party marked 50 years of Canadian clubs in Norway, dating back to the founding of the Canadian Women's Club (CWC) in 1958. Around 65 of us enjoyed an evening of good company, fine food, inspiring speeches, and dancing into the wee small hours.

Special thanks to Janette Fjeldstad, Gabriele Haddrath and Jay Gustafson for doing a wonderful job of arranging this very special evening.
