Every year, the directors of the 5 northernmost Laura sites gather for an informational meeting. It's a great way for the directors and site staff to discuss ideas and support one another. This year, it was DeSmet's turn to host, and Tessa and her staff rolled out the red carpet to make everyone feel welcome and supported. Here's a group photo taken at the Ingalls Homestead.

PRESS RELEASE:

COMING TO THE LAURA INGALLS WILDER MUSEUM THIS WEEKEND: Don't miss this Demo on Spencerian Script!

On Saturday, August 10 and Sunday, August 11 (1 pm to 5 pm both days) the Laura Ingalls Wilder Museum in Pepin will be hosting the second in a series of demonstrations for the 2019 season. Debra Fisher will be presenting demonstrations and hands-on experience for interested people of all ages throughout both afternoons in Spencerian Script.

Spencerian script was taught in the United States from 1848 to 1915. It was considered the gold standard for penmanship during that time. Spencerian script is noted for its strict 52-degree slant, its lavish ornamental capital letters and its flowing connectivity of the lower case. By 1920 Spencerian script began to wane in popularity due to the new Palmer method. Palmer kept the lower-case lettering of Spencer and simplified the capital letters to make it faster and easier to learn. Many readers will remember learning the Palmer alphabet during their school days.

Any suggestions on how to get there from a cruise ship in Red Wing September 9th? I can't find a bus service and short of hiring a taxi I can't find anything.
