Message from the
Our donation drive was started at the end of December with an ambitious goal of $100,000.00 dollars. Our rentals and poker fundraisers bring in enough money for day-to-day operations, however, our cultural programs and scholarships need support, as well as our aging building that requires numerous upgrades. The roof replacement, parking lot and heating and cooling equipment are the biggest items in the foreseeable future. We are forever grateful for the donations received so far.
Children's Suomi Koulu and adult Finnish classes started last month. Children's classes are divided into two groups, teenagers and small children. Some of the older students are helping the young ones as assistant teachers. Parents are also actively involved in the activities as well. It is a wonderful opportunity for everyone involved.
Friday night suppers have started again as well as monthly luncheons. Valentine's party at noon on Wednesday February 7, 2018.

Finlandia Foundation lecturer of the year Tom Dubois will be at the Finnish Center February 17 at 2 pm in conjunction with Kaleva Day Brunch starting at noon organized by Knights & Ladies of Kaleva.
