Message from the

Spring is just around the corner. Beautiful sunny days have shown up in-creasingly reminding us of the warm weather that will eventually be here despite the harsh cold that we have experienced these past couple of months.

Volunteers are hard at work organizing events and planning for future hap-penings. The new Board has been seated and ready to tackle the issues at hand. New revised by-laws are available at the front office or can be mailed to you upon request. The board is also working on new procedures and poli-cies.

Our financial situation greatly depends on our rental income and poker events. We have had a lot of inquiries and have booked several weddings, bridal showers, birthdays, memorial services and graduations. All of these functions require a lot of work in planning, set-up and dismantling. We are in dire need of more volunteers. Please consider helping even if it is only for a few hours. Due to the shortage of volunteers we had to hire a cleaning service to do a regular cleaning. Any donation towards those expenses would be greatly appreciated. We feel it is important to keep the facility in presentable shape for our future rentals.

The Sibelius jubilee has gotten a nice start. The Livonia Symphony held a concert featuring Sibelius music; we had a beautiful presentation of Sibelius by Steven Niemi in conjunction with the Kalevala event. Later in the year we will have a couple of featured performances of Sibelius music in Ann Arbor. Watch the newsletter for more information.

Our directory is finally off the printers and available. It can be picked up at the Finnish Center or mailed to you upon request. A small donation would be appreciated in order to cover the cost of printing and postage. A big por-tion of the cost is already absorbed thanks to the advertisers in the directory. We are very appreciative of those who purchased advertisements to help defray directory production costs. Please consider giving these folks your business should the need arise.

As always, if you have any questions or comments, do not hesitate to call or email us. We can be reached at the Finnish Center or you can call me at (734) 834-6085.
