WINNIPEG, HATÍÐARBLAÐ 1981-13 First Lutheran Church in Winnipeg commemorates the International Year of the Handicapped The People of the First Lutheran Church have voted to construct an elevator at the church in order to provide better access for disabled members of the congregation and to commemorate the International Year of the Handicapped. At a general meeting held on Thursday, June 25, 1981, the congregation voted overwhelmingly in support of the proposal which would see the elevator constructed at a location near the east junction of the church property and the parish hall. The cost of the project has been estimated at $35,000.00. "The Church Council believes that it is imperative that access be provided for all members of the con- gregation," said a church spokesman in a recent interview. "We have a number of members who have been unable to worship with us on a regular basis due to physical handicaps. The elevator will not only be of assistance to those of our members and visitors confined to wheel chairs but also to those who are disabled either by heart disease, arthritis or some other disabling condition." The elevator will provide access not just to the.church but to the parish hall, lower auditorium and Sunday School area. In all, four levels of the church will be served by the elevator. When asked about funding of the project, the spokesman indicated that the church council hoped that the project would be financed through special offerings by members of the church and friends of the congregation. He indicated that donations could be forwarded to thg church with special designa- tion for the elevator fund. First Lutheran Church was found- ed in 1878 by Icelandic Pioneers who settled.in Winnipeg. There are today approximately 1,000 baptized members of the parish. Golden Anniversary Gudlaug Kristin Brandson from Arborg and Sigurdur Peterson from Gimli were married in Winnipeg on September 8, 1931. To honour this occasion the family will be having an open house on Sunday, August 2nd, 1981, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Peterson residence 119-3rd Avenue, Gimli. A cordial invitation is extended to all relatives and friends. No gifts, just the honour of your presence. Kætumst meðan kostur er Það var algeng sjón hér áður fyrr að sjá nýstúdenta á rölti um miðbæinn í Reykjavík á 17. júní. Nú útskrifa flestir skólar stú- denta sína miklu fyrr, hinir fyrstu jafnvel í byrjun maí. Síðustu stúdentarnir á þessu vori úlskrifuðust frá Mennta- skólanum á Akureyri og voru þeir 116 talsins og hafa þá alls verið útskrifaðir stúdentar frá 15 skólum á þessu ári. Ekki vitum við frá hvaða skóla þessi unga stúdína tók sín próf. En víst er að hún hún var ánægð daginn sem hún fékk hvíta kollinn. Compliments oí: YARN PARADISE Yams.
