Message from the
It seems that summer just started and already we are heading towards fall. A lot of exiting milestones will be celebrated in the next couple of years. 2015 marks Sibelius 150th birthday, 2016 is a milestone at the Finnish Center with its 50th anniversary, and 2017 will be the 100th anniversary of Finland's Inde-pendence. We, at the Finnish Center, want to contribute in all of these mile-stones with events and celebrations. Sibelius events are already included in the calendar for this year, and we are proud to say that we have really exceed-ed all expectations in the contributions for these events. A big thank you goes to Yvonne Lockwood and Katri Ervamaa for making all this happen. Finlan-dia Foundation has played a role in these endeavors as well. Mark your calen-dars for all the events during September, October and November.
As mentioned many times before, all these events need a lot of dedicated vol-unteers to come to fruition. Please consider helping out; even an hour or two would be greatly appreciated. If your time does not allow, please consider a donation towards hired hands for these tasks. We have come a long way to-wards a well-run operation but cannot continue without manpower and funds. Please call the office if you are willing to volunteer!
Hope to see you at the fall events at the Finnish Center.
Mia Lamminen, Chairman
