Another month has gone by quickly, which means we are closing up on the February centennial celebrations, in honor of Finland 100.

Join us and meet new people, network, foster your business and meet the Keynote Speakers, the Speaker of the Finnish Parliament Ms. Maria Lohela and Mr. Steven Grant, Mayor of Boynton Beach.
