Order Icelandic Christmas Food By December 10th

A message from ICCT member John Thordarson:
I will look after ordering and receiving the Icelandic Food order from Gimli again this year, in the same manner as in the past, by getting one shipment in by Greyhound Bus, which will come to my office building at 1700 Midland Ave. ( Half way between Lawrence Ave E, and Ellesmere Rd. in Scarborough) for pick up. We have added Vinarterta from Arden Jackson of Caledon ON, and Icelandic brown bread from Noble Culinary of Toronto for the convenience of those that may want to combine these items with your meat orders.
Details are as follows:
A) PRICING: Please see list below for the Icelandic Christmas products available, along with the prices.
B) ORDERING: Those wanting to place an order, please do so at the thorco@aol.com email address, or phone 416-751-8747 and leave your verbal order on the telephone answering machine. Orders are to be placed by Dec. 10, 2013.
C) PAYMENT: As in the past, payment can be made by personal cheque (made out to John Thordarson), or by cash at the time of pick up of your order. Out of town orders can be forwarded on from Toronto by Purolator if so desired.
D) ORDER PICK UP: Orders can be picked up at my office building at 1700 Midland Ave. in Scarborough. There is a bus stop, as well as a parking lot immediately in front of the building. I will notify each person that has placed an order by email of the amount due an advance of your order pick up. For shut ins or people not able to pick up your order, we can arrange to deliver to you.
E) SCHEDULE: Please have your orders placed with me by Dec. 10th. The orders should be available for pick up on Dec. 18th or 19th.
F) SPREAD THE WORD: Please forward this email on to friends that may have missed my above list that may want to order. Enjoy our Icelandic Heritage and Traditions.

Merry Christmas,
John Thordarson
