DFA Oracle for Thursday May 24, 2018


Viking medallionFamily Reunions Update

In the previous issue, Brad had sent me a welcome letter to publish, but I made a few typing mistakes when I copied his list of recent Dragland family reunions. Here is the corrected list:
   • 1972 – Lethbridge, Alberta
   • 1989 – Farm West of Lethbridge, Alberta
   • 2007 – Vancouver, BC
   • 2010 – Medicine Hat, Alberta
   • 2014 – Las Vegas, Nevada
   • 2017 – Kelowna, BC

Note: The corrected version of Brad's entire welcome letter can be seen in the DFA Oracle Archives.

Best Regards,
