A trip to Washington DC, for a Finlandia Foundation Chapter meeting, was well attended with thirty-two member associations from all over the United States in attendance. The purpose was to get acquainted with other chapters, share ideas, learn from each other in planning for the future and to strengthen together our organizations.
We learned many new ideas during the meeting, especially in the fund raising category. The Washington DC chapter Bazaar impressed us a lot. They have been holding an annual fundraiser, selling mostly baked goods, which has been very profitable and highly successful for over 60 years!
The Finnish Center has been buzzing with activity during the month of No-vember and December will be no exception. The culmination of our 50th an-niversary celebration in the beginning of December is a fitting tribute to our founding members who made our Center a possibility. A Finnish Christmas dinner is also planned for December 17. Mark these events in your calen-dars!
Our Scandinavian Bazaar was followed by the Swedish Christmas Fair in No-vember. Plans are under way to have more interaction with the other Nordic countries in the form of joint activities. We look forward to hearing positive responses to our plans.
I wish all of you Happy Holidays and look forward to seeing you at the Finnish Center in 2017!
