The Meeting Program:

Voices from the New Land
by John Mark and Dawn Nielsen

The program will explore Danish immigration to Nebraska through dramatic readings from immigrant letters, journals and diaries, as well as old photographs, drawings and scenes of present day Denmark and Nebraska. The Nielsens focus on the stories of individuals--what motivated them, how they struggled with the land and faced the hardships as well as how they experienced the joys of community and the satisfaction of realizing their dreams.

We hope to see everyone there!

Dues will now be $10.00 per person, or $25.00 for a family. Please get your dues to Pat Hunsche as soon as possible if you would like to continue to be a member and support the group!
