5/17/07 – Today is a big day at Sawbill for two reasons. It is Cindy Hansen’s birthday and Norwegian Constitution Day. Cindy celebrated with presents and cake. Carl Hansen celebrated his mother’s birthday by marching for hours with his band in Hamar, Norway. – Bill
Carl Hansen (snare drum closest to the camera) marching in the Syttende Mai (17th of May) parade in Hamar, Norway, where he has been an exchange student since last August.
Here is part of the crowd in Hamar that turned out to celebrate Constitution Day and watch Carl’s band lead the parade. Lake Mjosa, the largest in Norway, can be glimpsed at the bottom of the hill.
