40th Jubilee of the Queen of Denmark
This January 2012; has a little bit of history and a little bit of Now for the Danish people! Celebrations were held for H.M. Queen Margrethe II in all of Denmark for the 40th Anniversary as the reigning Monarch. Beginning January 10th and carrying on through until January 15th Official Special Events were held across Denmark. A number of places that held a variety of programs including the Folketing, which is the Danish Parliament, photo and press conference in the Great Hall, Christian IX’s Palace, Amalienborg, opening of an exhibition at The Museum of Natural History, Frederiksborg Place, opening of the exhibition “Royal Gala” at Amalienborg Museum, and other places. H.M. The Queen began her reign at the death of her father January 14, 1972. There was also a wreath laying ceremony at the graves of her father and mother King Frederic IX and Queen Ingrid at Roskilde Cathedral.
This is a recap of an article from The Danish Pioneer.

Spring Event
Walton Lake, Saturday May 19th 1:00 to 4:00
The Danish Club of Central VA would like to invite you to a Spring Celebration Smørrebrød! This year’s event will again be hosted at the Walton Lake Clubhouse. Please see the enclosed directions. The luncheon will be much like the previous years, good friends sharing good food.

The bad news …
After many calls, meetings and conversations, the DCoCVA has realized just how much of a contribution was being made by Ken Thers by arranging to host the annual Julefest at The Place at Innsbrook. Unfortunately, the loss of his contributions prohibited the club from having the Julefest this past season. Currently, this function is being reviewed by the board to locate a replacement facility with a kitchen staff and chef to provide the Danish foods we’ve come to love and appreciate. If anyone has any suggestions as to a new location to host the Julefest, please contact Lissi.

The GOOD news …
As a result of the bad news, the board has chosen to suspend the membership fees for last year for all current members.

Fall Event
The date of 9/22 is a tentative at Finn Jensen’s house for the Fall pot luck picnic limited to 20 people where we hope to be able to invite University of Richmond students. More information will be available as it’s available.

Member list
The current member list is attached. Please review your information and forward any corrections to the board.

ABSOLUTELY NO WALK INS

This year we will have stations set up where you “make your own” smørrebrød” since we do not have volunteers to spend the hours it takes to prepare. Some members seemed to like the choice of paying more and not having to bring something so we will continue to offer that for those who are pressed for time. We must know in advance though so we can shop and prepare accordingly. Please be sure to specify below what type of dessert you will bring or Danish Beer (available at Total Wine). The Club will provide soft drinks, iced tea and coffee
