May 12 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Do you think you know everything there is to know about Syttende Mai?, (i.e. Norwegian Constitution Day) So did our speaker, Ruth Paulson! But she quickly learned there’s so much more to this national holiday than wearing bunads! See how Norwegians celebrated Constitution Day in the past and in recent years…not even the German Occupation or the pandemic could stop people in honoring this day in some way! Learn how this tradition has journeyed to many parts of the United States today.
Ruth Paulson is an avid lover of all things Norwegian and enjoys sharing that love with others. A retired classroom teacher and college instructor, she can often be found volunteering for Livsreise, the Mt. Horeb Driftless Museum, the District 1 Schoolhouse Program, the Vesterheim Norwegian-American Museum, and Good Shepherd Food Pantry in Madison WI.
