Roger Hellesvig, a third-generation American of Norwegian descent, has developed a persona of Ole Oleson and brings history to life during his presentation.

Hellesvig uses a trunk as his prop, explaining the contents and how he acquired them, the order of importance that each item was meant for, the limited amount of space in the trunk for only the most essential items and his story of preparing for and arrival in America.

Refreshments will be served after the presentation.  The cost to attend the Tea Talk program is $3.
