Livsreise

 

Thank you!

 

 

Greetings from Lisvreise- Norwegian Heritage Center:

 

 The end of the year brings no greater joy 

than the opportunity to express to you 

season's greetings and good wishes. 

 

Thank you for visiting us in 2015, our inaugural year. 

We hope that your visit reminded you of  

family 

members long gone, who immigrated and 

brought 

along traditions from Norway

 that you still practice today. 

 

 

We look forward to seeing you again in 2016. 

We are still adding to our artifact collection 

and will be having an array of 

interesting 

speakers in our 

auditorium 

throughout 

the year.

 

We wish you joy and peace in 2016!
