Holberg Reunion

Summer 2019

Countdown to the Holberg Reunion








A Once in a Lifetime Opportunity!

The HOLBERG REUNION for Summer, 2019

From August 16 to 18, former residents of Holberg will be gathering to get reacquainted with old friends, celebrate and share memories. According to organizer Harry Ashcroft, people will be able to camp on the baseball diamond and use the community hall over the weekend.

Additional details about this long overdue event are on the It Started in Holberg group page on Facebook. There is also an event page called Holberg REUNION summer 2019. 

Please note that neither Facebook page is open to the public and, if you haven’t done so already, you’ll need to request access to them. (I have nothing to do with that, so please don’t ask me.)

I’ve posted a screenshot of the group’s main Facebook page below and will leave it for you to get the details you need from the information that is already posted here or, better yet, from the Facebook pages that are linked above.

The video was taken in 2006 (before there were good smartphone cameras), but the excellent thumbnail image for this video was taken in 2017 by Mikofox Photography. In fact, all of the still pics on this page are his and, because they are so awesome, a gallery of more of his work is included below.


Clicking on the image below will take you to a Facebook page that has all the reunion information. Questions should be directed to the owner(s) of that page.

The Amazing Work of Mikofox Photography

Please check out the Mikofox Photography Flickr Photostream!

At the top of his profile page, he says, “What seems a long time ago, I emigrated from the edge of the Black Forest, to the backwoods of the Yukon” and, as a Holbergarian who enjoyed working with and getting to know some of the many Europeans who also worked at the logging operation, I urge you to check out more of Mikofox’s breathtaking images at https://www.flickr.com/photos/mikofox. They truly do capture the magic of the North Island!
