In addition to planning the tour, we are also
preparing to make a donation to the fund for the Restoration of the
Steinmeyer Organ at Nidaros Cathedral. We are accepting contributions from
all for this effort.
Help Us Restore the Steinmeyer Organ at the
Trønderlag of America is
seeking donations to assist in paying for the restoration of
the Steinmeyer Organ (parts of which were destroyed by fire
in the 1980s). The organ was given to Nidaros Cathedral in 1930.
We have set a donation goal of
10.000 NOK (about $1,700 USD). As a 501(C)(3), not for profit
organization, donations to the organ fund are tax deductible.
Donations can be given to Jon Satrum, TOA Treasurer, at the Stevne,
or send donations to:

It is vital in
all cultural life to maintain a link between the present and the
past. If there is anything that history makes clear it is this, that
when a people becomes interested in its past life, seeks to acquire
knowledge in order to better understand itself, it always
experiences an awakening in life.
