12:00 p.m.  Program: “Papa — a life remembered. An Immigration Story” By Phil Formo
Philip Formo, retired pastor of the ELCA, is the grandson of Papa. He will speak about the process of writing and share portions of Papa, A Life Remembered. The book is about the seasons of a lifetime. While some are as bright as the seemingly endless Norwegian summer sun, others are as frightening as threatening waves lashing a small North Sea island. The first season of Andreas' life took place on one such island over a century ago. Never intending to catch "America Fever", Andreas arrived in the USA to pay off school loans. After attending Augsburg Seminary he served two parishes and then taught for 40 years at Augsburg Seminary. Books will be available for sale. Proceeds go to the Andreas Helland Scholarship at Augsburg College.
