Message from the
Chairman

As 2015 approaches, I would like to take the time to reflect on all of the good things that happened this year at the Finnish Center. Many volunteers have worked tirelessly to make our center an enjoyable place for everyone who comes. We are all working together toward the common goal of pre-serving the Finnish Culture. We are planning to revive some traditional ac-tivities, and also include modern activities for our Finnish youth. We are very excited to welcome Alexandra Brewer, our new teacher for Suomi Koulu. Her grandfather was Finnish, and she earned her degree in the Finn-ish Language from Seattle Washington. Presently, she is a graduate student at the University of Michigan. Alexandra began classes with the children in November. She plans to start adult classes in the beginning 2015.

The remainder of this year is filled with cultural and holiday activities. We are busy organizing concerts, Pikkujoulu, the Christmas dinner, and candle-light service. We have many wonderful ways to enjoy the fun festivities before the end of the year.

As always, the survival of the Finnish Center relies on the willingness of our community members to volunteer. Please let us know if you are willing to devote some time here at the center. We greatly appreciate even just an hour of your time. We have accomplished so much during the year and I would like to thank all of the dedicated volunteers who make this possible. After a successful 40 year building dedication ceremony, we are looking forward to celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Finnish Center Associa-tion in 2016.

We welcome your suggestions for activities and future events. We are al-ways interested in hearing your feedback. Please call the office at (248) 478-6939 or contact me directly at (734) 834-6085. I look forward to speaking with you.

Have a wonderful holiday season

Mia Lamminen, Chairman
