Congratulations to Hafsteinn Pounds who has been selected to receive our first annual Icelandic Association of Washington D.C., Inc. scholarship for the academic year 2016/17. A $500 scholarship is awarded to him and paid directly to his educational facility, in this instance, Northern Virginia Community College.
James and Jóna Pounds are Hafsteinn's parents. The family has deep ties to the city of Grindavík. Hafsteinn is very proud of his Icelandic heritage and his name. His passions lie in arts and his interests include carving and sculpting, he is currently completing an updated portfolio. Hafsteinn intends to pursue an education in the Fine Arts field, including but not limited to, Animation and Illustration.
We are pleased to participate in sponsoring the Third Annual Golf Tournament to celebrate the memory of our late friend, Axel Palmason, who was a longtime Icelandic resident in the Washington DC area and International Monetary Fund employee. Axel passed away tragically on July 10, 2014, and we are joining with his friends to organize the golf tournament in his memory on Saturday, October 1, 2016 at the Bretton Woods Golf Club, with a likely shot-gun tee off around 1 pm. All Icelandic and affiliated golfers from the region are welcome. The tournament will be followed by a reception with food and beverages where both players and their spouses are welcome to attend. If you are interested in playing, please contact Gunnar Magnusson through facebook messenger or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We welcome a new major sponsor of our Association and the Thorrablot, WOW Air.
