Message from the
What a wonderful finish for the year 2017 with Finland's 100th year of Independence festivities, followed by concerts, Christmas parties, both for young and old and to be able to quiet down before the Christmas holiday with the Candlelight Ceremony in remembrance of deceased loved ones. This past year has been a busy one both with our activities as well as rentals and other fundraising activities.
There will be challenges, some very tough challenges. As indicated previously, it will be ever so difficult to keep our membership numbers up. On the positive note, we are happy to inform that IRS approved our 501C3 status. This means that any donations given to Finnish Center are tax deductible. Please consider Finnish Center when deciding on donations. We want to maintain the Finnish Center as a Cultural Center for all to enjoy for years to come. However, the building is getting old and needs a lot of repairs. We want to make sure that we continue the legacy that our founding members intended, when they started our organization.
I want to thank all of the tireless volunteers who made possible the success of FCA year 2017. Without dedicated volunteers we could not have done it. A special thank you goes to Sarah Wiideman, who worked tirelessly and made our Independence Day celebration a success.
I wish all of you a very healthy and Happy New Year, and hope to see you at the Finnish Center this coming year.
