    "June 26 and 27 were Iceland Days in Spanish Fork and the slogan was: Remember the Past - Have faith in the Future. The program started early in the morning but the main activities began around 11.00 a.m. There was a good attendance, maybe about 150 people including many children. At noon there was Lamb Dinner, as the main dish, but KFC for those who didn't like the lamb! The program included a Welcome speach - of course - given by Richard Johnson, a song by Miss Spanish Fork, Annalece Boothe, of Icelandic origin, the auctioneer beyond comparison, Jack Tobiasson, auctioneered a beutiful quilt and raised a lot of money for the IAU. The highlight of the program, to my mind, was the youth choir singing in Icelandic. I doubt they understood the words they sang, but they were just great. And their conductor is to be commended.

    Yes, there were a lot of people gathered and it was great to meet so many of my corresponding friends in Utah.

    The Iceland days were closed the following day in the afternoon with a meeting called "Fireside". There were music, songs, speaches and prayers - Remembering the past - Having faith in the future. It's beautiful how this people preserve their 150 years old Icelandic heritage."
