Post-event version

You came.

We laughed; we cried; we re-connected and we re-confirmed.

We took pictures. Lots of pictures.

And you ordered the Memorial CD (proceeds of which fund the Norgy Memorial Scholarship for members of the Jasper Ski Club).

This section of visit-jasper.com will stay up for a while to give you a chance to remember and to order the CD.

Until it is time to remove these pages I wish to thank you for coming. Your attending gave many, many people, myself included, much joy.

How do you honour a life force like Donny Nordgren?

In kind.

Many of his friends are coming together to put on a memorial event for anyone who ever laughed with, skied with, canoed with, rode a horse with, worked on a ski race course with, partied with and, yes, was ever driven a little crazy by Don Nordgren. If you knew him you shared some or all of the above.

We offer you the chance in mid-April to join with us as we enjoy each other’s company in a function much to Donny’s liking.
