I am writing this in Finland during our yearly ski trip. Winter is still here with a lot of snow, especially here above the Artic Circle. Days are getting longer with a lot of sunshine and northern Lapland is providing a perfect surrounding for skiing in the fells and woods while experiencing the real sound of silence.
Finland today is a happy place and as a country is doing remarkably well. Last week, Finland was selected as the happiest country in the world. Finland has also according to the CIA the lowest Gini Index in the world - this means that income distribution is the most even among all of the countries of the world.
Spring is in the air! Finnish Center is buzzing with activity. St. Urho’s celebration was a wonderful get-together in harmony with all other events going on at the same time. Monthly Finnish movies and Suomi Koulu are going strong.
Our wonderful volunteers are working hard with all events to have programs for all to enjoy.
The donation drive has been going on during the last three months and we are making the next big investment in the kitchen. We are replacing our old and failing dishwasher! It is long overdue and will make the operation in the kitchen much easier.
Tapiola Senior Housing renovation plans are progressing. There is a lot of work to be done but this is something we must do to provide updated and modern facilities for our renters.
Mark your calendars for all of the events in April. There will be a movie, Flea Market, monthly luncheon, and Spring Market among others as noted in this newsletter.
See you at the Finnish Center during our events. And as always, if you have any questions do not hesitate to contact us.
