"Program 8.mp3

Welcome to our 8th program. It's the season known as "Skerpla" and Gus tells us a little about this second month of summer in the Old Icelandic Calendar.

This particular episode is a little longer than usual. The Icelandic community in the lower mainland of Greater Vancouver has made a very difficult decision to demolish the existing Höfn Care Home, lay off its staff and start all over again by building a new senior's residence following the provincial government's Assisted Care concept for the future. We hope you find the following program items informative.
