Well the year has come to an end. It has been a productive year for the Finnish Center with such interesting events. I have learned a lot and have really enjoyed meeting new people and getting more involved in the life of the Finnish Center.
FinnFest USA was wonderful and brought many people in to our center. Many more came for the Scandinavian Market. What a fun day! Independence celebrations were informative and interesting. It would have been nice to have more people for Cake Day with the Gala from Finland but those who came certainly enjoyed it. What a nice event! Then our Independence Dinner was a huge success. David Sharpe had a nice talk about the Finnish Center. This was followed by music by the Finnish American Singers of Michigan (FASM) and Finnfolk. The beautiful night ended with Finlandia played by Don Reinholm. A superb job! On Sunday we concluded with a very nice program by the Cultural Committee. The talk on the Finns and the auto industry was very interesting.
The choir provided lovely music for all to enjoy in December. We are so lucky to have such good musical groups with the talent of Finnfolk and the FASM. I have really enjoyed their music.
To conclude this letter I would like to wish you a very happy and healthy new year. May it be a peaceful new year with happiness to fill your lives.
