Message from the
I cannot believe that the year is almost over! It seems like only yesterday that we were preparing for Christmas. The year has been very busy with both our own events as well as rentals. The building has gotten a lot of necessary re-pairs done, and the volunteers have worked harder than ever to keep things going!
December is very busy with our regular Buffets as well as the Brownbag Si-belius Concert, Independence Day events, Novi Band Concert, FASM Con-cert, Little Christmas Celebration, Pikkujoulu/Christmas Dinner and finally the Candlelight Service. I hope to see many of you there!
A heartfelt thank you to all who have participated in the work at hand! We could not operate without our dedicated volunteers giving so many hours of their time in keeping our doors open. We had planned a volunteer dinner in November, but due to member requests, we decided to postpone it until spring in order to be able to have good participation.
Today we are financially in good shape; the last two years we have been sol-idly profitable and the outlook is positive. This success has not come easily, it is a result of all our volunteers' joint efforts.
I want to wish all of you a wonderful holiday season and looking forward to another busy year of 2016, the 50th anniversary year of our organization!
