Message from the
This year is the 50th Anniversary year for the Finnish Center. It is a remarka-ble accomplishment from our founding members and everybody who has kept the doors open all those years. It has taken a lot of work and SISU and is even more remarkable in light of similar clubs having had to close these past several years. Several events are in the plans for celebrating this important milestone. We will keep you posted on them.
The Annual Meeting is held February 21, 2016 at 3 pm. Ballots are mailed to all members for the three Board of Trustee positions. Alternates and Chair-persons of each of the Standing Committees shall be elected by the members in attendance at the annual meeting. It is important that you attend the meet-ing. This election is important to continue the progress we have made with the current board to sustain the Finnish Center.
FinnFest USA has approached us and other Finnish organizations in the area for possibility of holding FinnFest 2017 in our area. This would coincide with the 100th year Anniversary of Finland's independence. We have expressed our willingness to discuss such event with FinnFest USA. We are currently conducting our due diligence of FinnFest USA, successes of the past FinnFest functions and suitability of our undertaking it, especially with such a short planning time. We will keep you posted.
And finally, as I have mentioned before, if you are in the area please consider volunteering at the Finnish Center. There are many different ways to make a huge difference! If your schedule is too busy or you are not in the area—please consider a donation! Thank you so much in advance for your support and encouragement!
