Where:  Ron Kolbus Lakeside Centre, Britannia Beach, 102 Greenview Avenue
Registration Form:  Click here – registration DEADLINE is April 5

Get ready for an evening of good friends, lovely food and plain old fun!

The Queen’s Birthday Party is for everyone at all ages (adults, that is). It’s a great opportunity to spend time with Club friends, catch up with people you may not have seen for while, and get to know other members better. Also, invite friends and family to join you and share in the festivities—it’s a treat they will appreciate.

This year we will return to serving the main meal buffet style, as we used to, and are prepared to lend a helping hand to anyone who requests it. The food is our wonderful traditional birthday fare with herring, shrimp and salmon to start, a main course of flæskesteg, frikadeller and the trimmings, followed by cheese and Danish dessert. It doesn’t get much better than that, does it?

We have hired a DJ, Octave Entertainment, who will bring thousands of your favourite songs. All you have to bring is your dancing shoes.

Spring Church Service 2016

Danish Spring Church Service
Sunday, April 24, 2016 at 14:00 (2 p.m)
St. John’s Lutheran Church
270 Crichton Street, Ottawa

As you know there will be no Easter Church Service this year, as Pastor Lars and his wife, Lis Skjødt-Jakobsen, are vacationing in Denmark and Germany, and are not expected to be back in Canada until March 30th. Instead they will come to Ottawa for a Spring Service on Sunday, April 24, 2016 at 14h00 (2:00 p.m.). By that time surely spring should be here, without the snow and with balmier weather.


After the Service we will meet in the adjacent Church Hall for coffee and tea, hoping our usual Church and Bazaar Ladies are willing to bake something for us. Hope to see you there! In the meantime enjoy the coming of spring!
