One Day "Mini-Stevne"
encouraged to join Telelaget members in
Mini-stevne events will be held in a variety of facilities. They include:  The Kviteseid Lutheran Church, founded in 1872 and named for the Kviteseid Church in Kviteseid, Telemark.  The Milan Village Arts School is a non-profit, member-supported organization dedicated to promoting the arts. Each year, the school hosts a diverse range of classes, reflecting the rich arts heritage within the community. and  The Arv Hus Museum contains unique exhibits donated to the Museum. Curator Billy Thompson has his artwork on display as well as hand-crafted wood frames.
The Telelaget Board of Directors selected this site for our mini-stevne because it typifies traditional community Syttende Mai celebrations. Telelaget members in attendance will meet as a group for lunch. However, there will be no formal meeting or registration fees.
