October Monthly Meeting – Dalys Barney of Nanaimo, BC

October 16, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Dalys’ great grandparents Ole and Konstanse (Fyhn) Olsen met and married in 1914 at Bella Coola. She will share their story of separate journeys from Norway to Canada, the life they built together in Hagensborg in the Bella Coola Valley, and their eventual move to Vancouver Island in 1935.

Dalys is a member of the Nanaimo Historical Society, blogs at vanislehistoryexplorer.ca, and can be reached at vihistoryexplorer@gmail.com. She will have a booklet to sell, “Message on a Bottle: Nanaimo’s Soda History” which is a look at the city’s soda industry, focusing on single-serving glass soda bottles and local manufacturers.

All monthly meetings are available to our members via Zoom. Our October meeting is also Hybrid meaning we can gather in person at Beban Park Social Centre, 2300 Bowen Rd, Nanaimo or view the speaker remotely on Zoom. The doors open by 6:30 pm with the Zoom session starting by 6:45.
