The Scandinavian Trade Association held its 2015 Viking Fest on this last Saturday, October 10, 2015. The Scandinavian Trade Association is a non-profit organization established in 1992 to foster the growth of Scandinavian business & cultural exchange in the Tampa Bay Area. Their mission is serve the Tampa Bay area as a professional organization for Scandinavians living in the area, for cultural & professional networking and relocation to the bay area or Scandinavia. Ivar Fiskaa is once again the President. He always makes everyone feel so welcomed & comfortable immediately. I first met him about 8 years ago & he is just as vibrant as ever. Thank you for letting us join Saturday’s event.     Viking Fest program

Tara Morgan & I had a Coastal Properties Group International / Christie’s International Real Estate booth at the Tampa Garden Club. It was a beautiful day and we had fun meeting so many wonderful new people and Viking descendants-from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland & Iceland. Not only did we meet new friends, conduct some business, learn so much more about the real Vikings but also had a lot of fun. For me it was extremely important & I know that my grandmother would have been so happy that I attended. She was so proud of her Norwegian heritage. I attended many a Sons & Daughters of Norway events with her in Portland, Oregon.

Ms. Ritta G. (see image below) was the winner of our Gift Basket drawing and she gave us permission to share with everyone that she was the lucky winner. If Tara or Annalisa can be of any assistance to you (or anyone you know) with your real estate needs in the future in Florida, Costa Rica or around the world, please feel free to contact us. Til vi møtes i Valhalla.
