Message from the
The Vappu Party (celebration of spring) was a wonderful welcome for the summer season. A lot of children and adults gathered with good food, fun and games, highlighted by a magician that kept everybody very entertained.
Even though our own activities are tapering off for the summer after our midsummer party on Friday June 12, we are very busy with a lot of rentals in June.
Suomi koulu will have its last class of the semester at the end of May. Our teacher Lexie has just graduated with a Master's degree from the University of Michigan and is moving back to Seattle. As mentioned before, we are looking for a teacher for the Fall. If you know anyone who might be inter-ested, please let us know. Even if we cannot find a teacher, the parents will continue the classes in a more informal fashion.
Sibelius concerts are coming up in the fall. Mark your calendars for No-vember 7 for the Ann Arbor Symphony Concert and December 3 at Ker-rytown Concert House in Ann Arbor with a performance by our own Katri Ervamaa and Marja Kaisla (Finlandia Foundation 2014 performer of the year). Please continue to check the upcoming newsletter calendars for our fall events.
As far as 2015 is concerned, we are financially on solid ground. But we all need to work together to ensure that FCA will be here for the next 40 years. We are a voluntary organization and need to have everybody work together for the common good.
I wish you a very wonderful summer and hope to see you at the Finnish Center. As always if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me. (cell: (734) 834-6085).
