West Eight Mile Road
Founded in 1966, the Finnish Center dedicated their Cultural Center in September 1974, in Farmington Hills, Michigan . . . . (more)
This coming September marks a milestone in the Finnish Center history. It was 40 years ago, on Sep-tember 21, 1974, when our FCA building dedication took place. This is the time to remember and appre-ciate all the hardworking members who made this project a reality. By today's standards the project faced unsurmountable obstacles. Present member-ship should feel honored and privileged to have had such a foundation laid before us; it is now our duty to carry forward the dream.
We all should take to heart and follow our pioneers' example on how things can be accomplished when everybody works towards a common goal. Our building is a daily reminder that hard work and dedi-cation can accomplish a lot. We should all remem-ber and cherish this building and put effort in keep-ing the building in good shape. Thanks to the gener-ous donations from our valued members we are able to do badly needed repairs.
We will honor this 40 year milestone by having a get together on September 21 from 2 to 4 pm. I hope that many of our older members will be able to come and share with our younger generation their memories from those early days
