Message from the
Summer is almost gone! I hope you have been enjoying the beautiful sunny days and are ready for the fall activities.
I have just returned from Finland visiting family and attending the confirmation of one of my grandsons. The Church of Finland arranges confirmation camps for expatriate children every year. This year a record number of our Suomi Koulu children attended such confirmation camps. It is a wonderful opportunity for the children to meet other youngsters from around the world on such an important occasion. They also have an opportunity to practice and improve their Finnish language skills during these camps.
We are gradually gearing up for the fall activities at the Center. Our first craft show was held with a great attendance of vendors and visitors alike. Based on the feedback, this event is going to be an ongoing thing in the future.
Gearing up for Finlandís 100 - year jubilee, we are planning on sprucing up the center to make sure our facility will be in great shape for the events. We will be mailing to our members a list of tasks that need to be done and hope for a great participation of volunteers for these tasks. If you are unable to volunteer, a monetary donation would be greatly appreciated towards this endeavor.
Please check the calendar for activities to come, and this reminder that the first Friday Night Dinner will be held September 8, 2017 from 5 pm till 8 pm.
Letís have a good and productive Fall and I hope to see you at the Finnish Center. As always if you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact me on my cell at (734) 834 - 6085.
