1920 Olympic champions honoured on 85th anniversary
Permanent exhibit unveiled
in MTS Centre, Winnipeg
A permanent exhibit
to honour the 1920 hockey
Olympic champions Winnipeg
Falcons will be unveiled in
the MTS Centre in Winnipeg,
Manitoba, at 2 p.m. on Sunday
April 17..
All but one of the Falcons'
players were of Icelandic de-
scent and they represented
Canada at the Olympic Games
in Antwerp, Belgium in 1920
where they captured the
world's first Olympic hockey
gold medal.
The Falcons Forever Ex-
hibit Campaign Committee
started working on the project
last fall and since then it has
been raising funds to cover the
cost of the exhibit.
The committee members
are Chairman Dan Johnson,
Don Lindal, Leif Olson, Brent
'Wall of honour' to be erected in Utah
The Icelandic Association
of Utah (IAU) is raising money
to make the property around the
Icelandic monument in Spanish
Fork, UT an outdoor museum
with a "wall of honour" before
the Sesquicentennial Celebra-
tion in June of this year.
According to the leaders
of the IAU, the project has to
be completed before June 1 so
it can be dedicated as a part of
the celebration June 23 - 26.
Therefore they have released
the following message:
"One hundred and fifty
years ago this year, pioneers
from Iceland began moving to
the Utah area, many of them
coming to Spanish Fork. They
came as many of the pioneers
did, without monetary means,
but with the desire to create a
better life for themselves and
their descendants. There were
16 original settlers, however,
410 eventually made the jour-
ney to Utah.
"In 1938 the Icelandic As-
sociátion of Utah, along with
Daughters of Utah Pioneers
placed a beautiful monument to
honor the first Icelandic setters
to North America. The current
monument honours those first
16 who came to Utah. As the
Icelandic Association of Utah,
we have felt the desire to hon-
our all of those who immigrated
to Utah by erecting a 'wall of
honour' to name each of those
who sacrificed so dearly.
"In addition to the 'wall
of honour' we would like to
update the grounds around the

ish Fork, UT.
monument by providing wheel-
chair access, new landscaping
and benches, so that the monu-
ment will become an inviting
place to visit and remember.
"The focal point will re-
main the existing lighthouse
monument. A second raonu-
ment to honour all that came
to Utah from Iceland between
1855 and 1914 will be locat-
ed directly to the north of the
lighthouse.
"It is necessary to raise
funds to complete this project
and the time is critical if we
are to complete this project for
our Sesquicentennial Celebra-
tion in June of this year. Any-
one wishing to donate can do
so by sending a cheque to the
Icelandic Association of Utah.
The Association is a non-profit
organization and donations are
tax-deductible."

formation, contact the Icelan-
dic Association of Utah, Inc,
