St. Norbert College will offer two Dutch Heritage Workshops on Thursday, November 17, from 6-9 p.m. and Monday, December 5, from 6-9 p.m. at Little Chute High School. Robin Dekker, executive director of the Little Chute Windmill Association/Historical Society, will teach the workshops.

Dekker is the only person to graduate from University of Wisconsin-Madison with a Dutch Culture and History degree.

Fifteen percent of Wisconsin residents have Dutch last names or can trace their lineage to Dutch heritage. The workshops are designed to deepen the community's understanding of the Dutch culture and experience in Northeast Wisconsin.

Each workshop is $30, and there are a limited number of seats available. The registration deadline is November 11.
