I will start this with one word, WOW. We had such an amazing luncheon on February 17th, where we celebrated Finland's 100 year of independence together with some remarkable guests. The event was a huge success, thanks to all of you who participated. The day after we witnessed a pretty amazing gala, organized by Finland One Hundred Inc. Committee, continuing celebrating Finland's centennial year. We were  glad to see that so many Finns and Americans gathered together to celebrate, let's keep it up! 

Yours truly,
Esa Jokela
