Message from the
I hope all of you have had a wonderful Christmas holiday!
It is exciting to begin the new year in view of the progress we have made with the challenges we have faced. We have come a long way in a few years and hope that the upcoming election will sustain our progress. We are finally on our way towards a healthy, renewed and vibrant Finnish Center. Your support of this board makes it possible.
Donations made directly to FCA are greatly appreciated. Only by giving donations directly to the FCA organization can one be assured that they will go 100% to FCA for our needs. Thank you to all who can help contribute!
A lot of young voices are also heard during our events thanks to the Suomi koulu. More than a dozen children are participating in the classes and more students are interested to join in 2015. As we all know, Finnish language is the main stay of our culture, and it is important to keep it alive. We are happy to let you know that adult classes will also start in January. Thanks to our cultural committee, plans are also on the way to start the weaving classes again! We have also been asked to participate in a dance performance in February with our folk dances. I am hoping that it will be a wonderful spark to get our folkdance group alive again.
A big thank you goes to our tireless volunteers who give of their time and skills in keeping our doors open. Without our volunteers, we would not be where we are today. Please consider giving a few hours of your time to help out so we don't burn out the people who give so much of their time to the Center. The Committee Chair persons have made sure that the activities meet the expectations of our members. We have had a lot of activity during the fall months, both FCA functions and rentals, including with the 40th anniversary of our building dedication and culminating with a very busy December. Now is a good time to keep the momentum going for the year 2015. What better occasion to get going than Karaoke evening January 17, 2015!
As always, if you have any questions or comments I would love to hear from you.
Thank you for your support! Hope to see you at the Finnish Center!
Mia Lamminen, Chairman
