Ever been to Iceland? Not many people have, but if White Memorials Conservation Center’s Gerri Griswold would have it, she would want everyone to go. Knowing that would be impossible, what’s the next best thing? Bring a piece of Iceland to Connecticut!
For the 3rd time the “Annual Iceland Affair” was held at the White Memorial Conservation Center, in Litchfield, Connecticut this past weekend.
Working year round to bring this all day affair, Gerri brings the “Taste of Iceland” to “Old McDonald’s Iceland Farm”, to an “intimate Concert-in-the-Shed” musical experience, all right from Iceland to you here in Connecticut.
It is a wonderful sight, sound, taste, experience that is not to be missed.
Talks about the Puffins, Iceland geology, and a awe inspiring travelogue about Iceland were just some of the activites that one could attend throughout the afternoon.
Here are some of the pictures of Connecticut’s Affair with Iceland.
A long table of Icelandic food including Icelandic Hot Dogs, coffee, cheese, butter, candy and other goodies were all for the tasting.
Icelandic handmade clothing right from the raw yarn, to the finished product.
A friendly playful sheep to greet the visitors.
An Icelandic Flag hangs in the Activity Shed as to welcome people to a small “Litchfield Embassy” slice of their country.
The Activity Shed starts to fill up as a pen of chickens are outside for viewing.
The beautiful Icelandic Dogs were playing with everyone.
With attention to detail, even the windows were adorned with Icelandic icons. A nice touch, bringing Iceland to this rustic setting.
To find out more about this “Affair” check out the White Memorial Foundations website.
It was a great time to experience the wonder of Iceland, even if it is a just a small slice of what you can experience if you do get to go! Don’t miss “this experience” next year, you will not regret it! Great job Gerri and all involved!!
