Norm Olson’s

100th birthday celebration


Hello everyone,

As you all know, Norm Olson will be celebrating his 100th birthday this September. There is a party at the Victoria church on September 10th.

Through the course of his life he has made countless memories with his family and friends. As a gift, I would like to collect some of these memories and put them together in an album - 100 memories for 100 years. In order to complete this project, I need your help in two ways:

1.  If you have a memory that you would like to contribute, please email them to me @ If you have a picture to include with your memory, that would be great!

2. Please pass this message on! Norm has many friends and family members, and I would like to give as many people as possible the opportunity to contribute their memories.

Thank you for your help!
