Message from the
Fall arrived overnight in the beginning of September and the trees started to change colors. We are really lucky to live in Michigan surrounded by beautiful lakes and nature and have no fear of huge storms and big earthquakes. Our hearts go out to the people devastated by the natural disasters in various parts of the world.
Suomi Koulu had its first meeting. It has now grown to two separate classes we call: isot and pienet. Adult classes will hopefully start next month. Conversa-tion group is meeting the First Friday of every month. FCA will offer a lot of opportunities to learn and/or improve your Finnish language skills. Our unique Finnish language is an important part of the Finnish Culture. And do not forget that we have Folk Dance workshop again. It is October 8, 2017 at 2 pm. We have a beautiful dance floor and it needs to be used more.
The Flea Market happened at the end of September with a very popular bake sale. The Scandinavian Market is also just around the corner with a bake sale as well. Mark your calendars for November 11, 2017. It will be a wonderful event and a way to meet friends and enjoy good Finnish food as well. Norwegians and Finns are providing an ethnic luncheon as usual.
Thanks to Dale Hietanen, we have a new computer at the center. It is a wel-come addition to our aging computer and office equipment. Two of our com-puters were so old that their operating systems could not be upgraded any more. Thank you Dale.
We are very excited to host the Runebergskoren Finnish Male Choir on Tues-day, October 3 at 7 pm. Please join us for this special event in honor of Fin-landís 100 years of Independence!
I hope to see you at the Finnish Center. If you are able to volunteer, please call us and we will find something for you to do. As always if you have any ques-tions, do not hesitate to contact me. (cell: 734-834-6085).
