President's Message
 
October 29, 2019


Welcome to another issue of the Scandinavian Business Club newsletter. We had a very enjoyable social evening for our dinner this month. Many members came to enjoy a delicious dinner of Danish Open Face sandwiches and the friendliness and camaraderie for which we are known. This month, we are privileged to have, as our guest speaker, Dr. Kari Turunen who is the new Artistic Director of the Vancouver Chamber Choir. Dr. Turunen brings a wealth of education and experience to the position and we expect an interesting and exciting talk.
Don't forget, our Christmas party is coming up on December 7th. We will be welcomed into the center, as usual, by the Runeberg Choir singing Christmas carols, a delicious Scandinavian Christmas dinner and music and dancing on into the evening. Mark your calendars and tell your friends, colleagues and clients about this wonderful event. If you have a small office, why not consider having your office Christmas Party with us?
 
Looking forward to seeing you all at dinner,

Paul Andreassen

UBC Voyage - A Special Presentation

           UBC logo

    UBC Voyage

 

In April, in addition to our regular speaker, we were given a special presentation by Torbjørn Reitan Fyrvik who told us about the UBC Voyage Project. The goal of the project is to design and build a fully autonomous research vessel which will be tested in the Atlantic Ocean. The team is currently working on the project but they are looking for assistance. Click the link below to learn about the project, its status and how you can help make it happen!
