Patriots with Two Mothers: Norwegian-Americans during World War I


Dr. Daron Olson will explore how Norwegian Americans during World War I attempted to remain loyal to the United States while remaining true to their cultural heritage. He will also discuss why the Norwegian-American identity has persisted into contemporary times.

Dr. Olson is an associate professor of history at Indiana University East.  His book "Vikings Across the Atlantic: Emigration and the Building of a Greater Norway, 1825-1945" was published in 2012. He received his bachelor's degree in history from Minnesota State University Moorhead, master's from the University of North Dakota, and doctorate from Southern Illinois University. 


At the 7 Lag Stevne we will be holding a talent show on Thursday evening July 14th.  Do you have a talent to share?  This is open to all who attend the Stevne.  Simply send your name, Lag name and your talent to Peg Schellin at pnschellin3@wi.rr.com.  Please keep your performance to no more than 10 minutes so we have time for all that wish to participate.

Banquet Entertainment   
Just Friends
"Just Friends" came together about 14 years ago with 6 men singing at diffferent churches in the New Richladn area.  The group grew to 10 members 5 years ago and then expanded their singing to county fairs, parades, celebrations, community events and private parties.  Their music includes spiritual, patriotic, and some barbershop music besides a variety of old favorites.  We hope you enjoy your musical journey with "Just Friends!"
