Message from the
Chairman

Spring is just about here. I hear David Sharpe has seen daffodils popping through the ground. Now that gives me hope and joy! Think spring! Think flowers and think sunshine! It is coming!

The annual meeting is behind us and I am very happy to report it was a great meeting. I wish to thank all who serve on the board and committees in any capacity. You do a great service for us and all the effort, large or small, is appreciated.

I would like to thank Mia Lamminen for her years of service on the board. We appreciate what you have done and given to the Finnish Center. The chairman’s job is a huge task that takes hours to make the Center run smoothly. I am sure past chairmen can all agree with that. Mia was dedicated to that job and I thank her for giving of herself and her time. She had to recruit people and teach them how to do things. Thank you for teaching me what you could and I hope you will continue to answer questions when you can. Enjoy your time with Olli and your wonderful family.

I would like to thank all volunteers at this time. We have had past chairmen who have kept this place going, and office workers who gave so many hours, and singers and pasty bakers. There are garden workers and people who set up events and many, many more. Thank you all.

The New Year promises to be a good one. We are planning on hiring a manager which will be an asset to the Finnish Center. We will have flea markets and travelogues and conversation groups. There will be more cultural events with movies, concerts, rug making and even a Finnish genealogy class. There will be opportunities for all. We want this year to be a year when we celebrate the joy of the Finnish community. It is our hope that we can talk to each other more and show that we are a warm, friendly group. I'm not saying we haven’t always been this, but we can always improve.

Thank you for making this the great place that it is today.

I would like to add a reminder to all the members that if you move, please provide us with your new address, phone number and/or email address. Thank you!

Mary O’Brien
