CANCELLED: Friends of MKI Annual Meeting in Port Washington

Saturday, May 2 @ 11:30 am - 7:30 pm

We are very sorry that the 2020 Friends of MKI Annual Meeting and Program
has to be cancelled because of the COVID-19 situation. 

CLICK HERE for further information. 

The Friends of the Max Kade Institute will hold their Annual Meeting 2020 in Ozaukee County, a center of German and Luxembourg immigration in the 1850s and 1860s. We will explore the maritime history of Port Washington, a beautiful Lake Michigan harbor town, where many immigrants first set foot on Wisconsin soil. In rotating groups, we will enjoy a self-guided tour of the Exploreum, the town’s new maritime museum; we will be guided through the historic Light Station and Museum; and we will visit the Port Washington Historical Society to see their exhibits and hear a presentation about the town’s early settler families from German-speaking Europe. Afterward, we will drive to the Milwaukee Ale House in nearby Grafton for the annual business meeting and dinner, followed by a presentation by MKI Director Mark Louden on “Luxembourgers in Wisconsin.”
