Message from the
Regards from beautiful Finland where we attended our university alumni meeting. It was nice to see old friends and also hear the latest news about Finland in general. The weather cooperated being unusually warm during our whole visit.
The fall at the Finnish Center is buzzing with activity. The Flea market is always a popular event followed by the Scandinavian Market November 10, 2018. We are looking for volunteers for this wonderful event where all Nordic Countries get together with a lot of fun stuff accompanied with good food and music. Last year we had record attendance and hope to have so this year again.
Elections are just around the corner as well. Members will be electing three new board members in February. We are looking for qualified candidates who are dedicated in promoting Finnish Culture with their enthusiasm and ideas to move the Center forward. Please consider volunteering in this way. We are still looking for a qualified person for our Treasurer. Please consider volunteering one day a week for this task.
Our annual Independence Day celebrations start December 5 with a noon time coffee and cake followed by Independence Day party December 8, 2018 at 5 pm in the evening and a lecture the following day. I hope you can participate in some if not all of the events. Reservations for the evening event are requested. Please call or email the office to make your reservation. We have a wonderful program in the plans and of course the Finnish dinner and desserts. I hope to see you there.
As always I hope to hear from you, call or email us and most importantly come by the Center and participate in our activities. I hope to see you.
