On Saturday, April 28th, 2018 our own Dale Goodman was the keynote speaker at the Livsreise Norwegian Heritage Center in Stoughton, WI. Dale gave a wonderful presentation detailing the events leading up to the voyage, why it took until October 9th for them to reach America, what happened in the new colony they established in Kendall county, NY and ultimately how they ended up in what is now Norway, Illinois.

Dale spoke to a standing-room-only crowd of more than 100 people and entertained many questions from the audience after his presentation. Dale’s presentation was entertaining and informative. The Sloopers manned an information desk at the event and it was fantastic to meet so many people who were excited to learn more about the Sloopers and the American Slooper Society.

    I enjoyed the pictures of this years “The Sloopers of 1825” at the Heritage Center. The picture of the Sloop is the reason for my e-mail. I have a copy I printed from the Web but would like to purchase a large, as shown.
    Kindly e-mail me the price at:catherinemlw@gmail.com
