Friends of the MKI Annual Meeting in Ozaukee County, WI

Sunday, September 26 @ 11:00 am - 7:30 pm

see mkifriends.org
The Friends of the Max Kade Institute will hold their Annual Meeting 2021 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.”
