Message from the

This is our 51st year. Our 50th Anniversary Year was quite successful in many respects.

This year is Finlandís 100th Anniversary year. A lot of activities will be planned by most of the Finlandia Foundation chapters around the U.S. including us. The Ambassador Kirsti Kauppi just inaugurated the traveling sauna tour in Minneapolis, MN which will make two stops in Michigan, one in Houghton in June and the other one at Finn Camp in Wixom in August. More information is available at

The plans for our activities are still in the early stages, expect a lot of interest-ing things to come. We are planning concerts, lectures and other cultural events that will culminate in our Independence Day party in December.

The Board and Committee elections are just around the corner, mark your cal-endars for the Annual meeting February 19, 2017. Also, this month we are mailing ballots to all members to change our Bylaws and Articles of Incorpora-tion as required for our application for 501.c.3 charity status. I encourage every member to return this ballot.

Adult Finnish language classes are going great with Leena Mari Bowers as a teacher. A new session starts in the beginning of February. Childrenís Suomi Koulu, however, is still looking for a teacher! In the meantime meetings are planned for informal lessons for the children by the parents. If you or anyone you know might be interested in teaching the children, please let us know.

If you are interested in volunteering, please let us know by calling the Center (248) 478-6939 or email us at:
