The first couple months of the year 2018 have been busy. We've had many great events in our Finnish American Community. The year started with Presidential Election. Then we had two FACC events; luncheon with Eero Lehti and polo event with SACC. Last week we had the pleasure of having the honorable Ambassador of Finland, Kirsti Kauppi visiting Lake Worth and Palm Beach area.
Ambassador Kauppi spoke well at the luncheon where she was invited by the Bahamas Paradise Cruise Line. Luncheon was held on MV Grand Celebration located at Port of Palm Beach. In her speech she stated that since Finland is a small country, it is important that the country invests in its people. It is a great mission. Thanks to that mission we have a lot of special expertise from Finland also here in South Florida. The future will show what kind of inventions, skilled leaders and breakthrough innovations Finland will provide. We are proud to be a part of promoting Finnish talent here in America, and also create new contacts between these two great countries.
