2018 07 Trillinger1A mother to triplets in Visse reacted, when she saw Christian the Fourth’s Guild’s Grant to Triplets mentioned in an article about the quadruplets in Kongerslev.

That is why C4 once more – with great pleasure - had to turn out to deliver the Triplet Grant, which was founded in 1944, and these triplets in Visse became the number 104 triplets to receive the Grant,(and we in the Christian The Fourth´s Guild feel that we play a small part in the increase in population through the years).

The tripletmothers  Lise Overby and Gro Garner Overby, Visse, had thought it puzzling that they hadn’t heard anything about a Triplet Grant – and it has now been revealed to be an error in the call-system for “ triplets and more than 3 children-births”.

Christian The Fourth´s Guild was very happy to receive the “news” about the triplets in Visse, and have now visited and presented the three children with their grants and bouquets of flowers and a bottle of “laugsbitter” for the mothers.

The Visse-triplets, Ingrid, Kamma and Frede, are born on the 17th of May 2017, and they are by far the biggest triplets that the chief bencher Niels Voss Hansen has as yet presented with the Triplet Grant.

Mama Lisa  tells that the pregnancy lasted 34 weeks and 6 days – then the children were born, 5 weeks prematurely – but they were O.K. all three of them, even though their first days had to be spent in the neonatal ward in Aalborg University Hospital. Their birth-weights were: 2,0 kg, 2,1 kg and 2,75 kg.

Once again the Guild’s Triplet Grant had succeeded in – a little late this time – to create some pleasure in a new home.

2018 Firlinger 3Two little girls and two little boys from Kongerslev has got an extra contribution to their old age pension because they received Christian The Fourth´s Guild´s triplet/quadruplet grant.

The grant was instituted in 1943 and are given to every triplet and quadruplet born in Aalborg. They each get a certain amount of money which time and inflation has raised to 1,500 DKK in 2018.

The quadruplets were born the 20th of April 2018. The quadruplets are named Leah, Noah, Axel and Ella; their father and mother are Anna and Luis Isaksson.

 Four benchers from the Guild visited the family and presented the grant and the money.

The mother received a bouquet of flowers and the father got a bottle of Laugsbitter. For the older brother Theo there was a box of Lego. For the small ones there also was a small bunch of flowers.

Christian The Fourth´s Guild was founded in Duus´ Vinkjælder in Jens Bangs Stenhus in December 1942 and the quadruplet/triplet grant was instituted a few months later. Last time it was presented was in 2017.

7Once each year Christian The Fourth´s Guild is “invaded” by its Norwegian branch which has its home in Oslo.  

It was a festive day with initiation of 10 new Norwegian members and when it was so festive it was not least because they had taken 80 Norwegians with them to Aalborg to participate in the initiation.

Chief bencher Niels Voss Hansen mastered the initiation in his usual fine style and the newly initiated had to take a walk in order to greet the Guild-tree in front of Aalborg old city hall and to try the “secret entrance” behind Jens Bang´s Stenhus.

The cheerful initiation ended with luncheon in Søgaard´s Bryghus and here there were wonderful music played by the Guild´s troubadours and by the New Orleans Orchestra that followed the Norwegians to Denmark.

The celebration of Christian The Fourth´s Guild´s 75 years jubilee on a sunny spring day on the fourth of May was a really wonderful day.
There was a cannon-salute, music, speech by the Mayor and other speeches, presentation of the "Light-prize" to
Jes Dige (Skyggebørn) and community singing.

We would like to say thank you to the more than 200 guests who participated in Duus´ Vinkjælder and the many who had sent gratulations.

We do that with this photo gallery.

The board of Christian The Fourt´s Guild want to thank everybody for their kind support of the jubilee festivities.
