Roger Hellesvig will be featured on June 20th from noon to 1 pm talking about his great grandfather a Norwegian Immigrant.

Roger will share the trials and tribulations of coming to America through the eyes of his Great Grandfather. Roger is used to sharing the story because since 1985 he has portrayed this man in a living history museum at Murphy's Landing in Shakopee, MN.

Roger has traveled to schools, museums and Norwegian Heritage events playing the part he knows so well. Using Ole's trunk, he will take us back to the mid 1800s. You will hear about the difficult choices that immigrants had to make, How their customs came to be and how they held on to the old country.

The story is designed to include the whole family and will be held in the Ruth Maney Room on the first floor of the Depot. It will be on June 20th from noon to 1 pm.

There will be limited theater-style seating (no tables), but feel free to bring your own bag lunch.  Seating is first-come, first served (no reservations).  Admittance to this event is free to the public.  ARCO coffee is provided.
