Art Rose Paterno Rosa r1r2pat@aol.com Art I was reading the Lifestyle column in the SI advance and there was an article about Kay Lande Selmer of Grymes Hill a professional singer and radio performer, She recently returned from a trip to Norway her father's birthplace and held a concert on Bergmann's Dag ( Miner's Day)inhonor of the miners who worked and died in the mine. This was the mine where copper was taken for the Statue of Liberty. The concert was held in the auditorium of the International school in Stavanger. When I read the name of that town it prompted me to write this. I believe you mentioned that town when you wrote about your vacation. I thought you stated that your grandparents came from there. Mrs. Selmer has been invited by the Norwegian Immigration association to repeat the performance she presented in April on Ellis Island. Her repeat performance will be on Aug. fifth on Ellis Island.
