A fresh winter snow and what better way to celebrate than some quick deer hunting in Sand Hills, south of Carberry. Or so thought my Dad, Palmi Johnson, originally from Riverton and a dyed-in-the-wool Icelander. This wasn’t my cup of tea; I was a bookworm then, in Grade 6, and would rather spend the afternoon lazing about, hopefully catching a Brandon Wheat Kings game or listening to the Beatles, my new band. . . .
“There is always something happening at the New Iceland Heritage Museum,” claims Gunnvör Daníelsdóttir Ásmundsson and a visit to the museum in Gimli at any time of the year will confirm her assertion.
The museum is currently featuring an exhibition by artist Julia Penny. The exhibition opened on January 29 and will continue until the end of February. . . .
