Filed under: Culture & History, Events, Keystone United News — Keith Carney @ 3:18 pm

leifday2009Many great thanks are in order to all of the folks that played a part in helping to organize this years 3nd annual Leif Erikson Day celebration. We would especially like to take the time and thank all of the people that made it out and took part in Saturday’s celebration.

As an event that started over two years ago as nothing more than an idea, it has been the continued support from all of our friends, family and supporters that has enabled us to build upon such an honorable celebration. And even with the rain scaring off a number of people we were still able do this great holiday justice and brave the weather in true viking spirit!

Thanks again everyone, we’ll be seeing all of you again next October.

Leif Erikson Day 2009: Making Your Efforts Count + Directions & Hotel Information

Filed under: Culture & History, Events, Keystone United News, News — Keith Carney @ 11:20 pm

188In less than one week from today many of us will be gathering in downtown Philadelphia to pay tribute to Leif Erikson and Thorfinn Karlsefni, two great men whose actions transformed their own thoughts and dreams into a reality, one that has impacted generations and even shaped the very lives that we live today. And much like the rest of us, with the numerous thoughts and ideas that pass through our heads on a daily basis, the Philadelphia Leif Erikson Day celebration started out as little more than just that; an idea.

With the help of no more than 30 people, the Leif Erikson Day celebration here in Philadelphia has since grown into an event that all of us can be proud of. We are now coming up on our 3rd year and we ask that all of you do your part to see that this event gets the proper attention it deserves. We ask that you take the time out of your day to repost our flier on any of the social networking sites that you use and to spread this information by word of mouth to your friends and family. But most importantly, we ask that you pay tribute to these great men by making the trip to Philadelphia, PA on Sat October 10th to stand side by side with all of us in honor of such a worthy celebration.

Filed under: Events — Keith Carney @ 6:38 pm

The following video was taken during last years Leif Erikson day celebration and includes one of three excellent speeches given during the days event. Due to it’s growing popularity we have decided to reproduce this specific speech in its entirety for you to enjoy. We hope to see many old and new faces at this years event and look forward to another remarkable celebration.

Friends, you have just listened to my colleagues speak about the history of Leif Erikson and Thorfinn Karlsefni and their journey across the sea that resulted in the discovery of the lands where you and your families now make your homes.

This episode of European history and achievement is so vitally important to our heritage and culture that it must be celebrated by us and taught to our children. (more…)
