Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2013
Brooklyn real estate attorney Robert Howe - host of the online radio show Howe's New York - welcomed Arlene Rutuelo and Rune Edvardsen to the show on the eve of Norway's Constitution Day to preview the upcoming Norwegian Day Parade taking place this weekend in Bay Ridge section of Brooklyn, NY.
The show, which addresses topics concerning local and national real estate, small business and community events and activities played host to parade organizer Arlene Rutuelo and humanitarian and founder of the Dina Foundation, Rune Edvardsen to learn about the weekend's activities which feature lectures by Edvardsen on the Dina Foundation's work in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.
"It's important for us as a culture to revisit the history and educate the people around us to the valuable contribution Norwegians have made in the New York area," said parade organizer and owner of the Nordic Delicatessen Arlene Rutuelo.
Each year on May 17 Norwegians fill the streets with cheers and flags in celebration of Norway's constitution, adopted in 1814. While his countrymen are observing the 199th anniversary of the constitution, Mr. Edvardsen will be taking in one of the largest Norwegian parades of this type in the country in the city that at one time boasted the third largest Norwegian population in the world.
"Everybody on this planet has the same right as you and me...to have a safe life," said Dina Foundation founder Rune Edvardsen.
The interview can be heard in it's entirety on Howe's New York.
