Norwegian Roar Moe speaks at Spring Grove Cinema Nov 18 at 715 pm v2 poster
Roar Moe, teacher, historian, sailor .. the last husmann?
November 18th, Thursday night at 7:15 Spring Grove Cinema shares with the public his concerns and successes – Here in SE MINN, NE IA, SW WI—Spring Grove and Norwegian Ridge, Minnesota
As technology develops, we ignore the traditional skills and practical problem-solving abilities of our earlier and immigrant ancestors? Do we always buy a new one or call someone to fix everything? Are we in front of a tv too often?
Follow the trail from the past of Norway’s fishing and farming coast through a story in pictures of self-sufficiency and practical skills without the engine or computer. Discuss where this story is heading and what it means to students attending Roar Moe`s Litle Færøy Coastal Academy.
See the attached flier and please forward this invitation to friends. Please post in any local bulletin boards. Students will enjoy this engaging presentation as well.
