The Nordic Heritage Museum (3014 NW 67th St) is holding a vigil this evening at 6 p.m. to honor the victims of Friday’s attacks in Norway.
The museum does not have a sense of how many people will be in attendance, but do have a plan for a large turn-out. The event will be held in the auditorium with overflow out into the parking lot and along the side of the building. Hilda Cullen with the museum tells us that they are working on an audio feed of the service for the overflow.
The Honorary Consul of Norway, Kim Nesselquist will be speaking as well as a moment of silence and an offering of prayers for the victims of the Oslo and Utøya attacks. “This is the time for all of us to come together, there is strength in community,” the museum website states. Cullen tells us that there will be tables set up for people to write down their thoughts.
The museum normally closes at 4 p.m. but will remain open until the 6 p.m. event if people want to arrive early.
