  • Finnish your dinner

    25 Aug 2017

    A fun, casual dinner at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby, BC to celebrate Finland 100.

    This will be a potluck dinner — so bring a dish to share! We will dine out on the deck, under the stars (weather permitting), so bring a sweater or a blanket if it’s a little chilly.

    Organized by Vancouver Finlandia Club.

    Sign up here or you can email vfclubmembers@gmail.com for more info or to register.

    Finland 100 Worldwide project website has been published!
    We have published the new website: http://suomi-seura.fi/suomi100maailmalla
    The website includes the Calendar of Events, the Idea Bank, the Material Bank and the Performer Bank.
    The website will be developed constantly. The theme of the Finland 100 jubilee year is Together.
    Expatriate Finns – Let’s build this new website together!

    Dear expatriate Finnish organisation, announce your Finland 100 jubilee year events in the Event Calendar!
    If you have an idea for celebrating the jubilee which you want to share with other expatriate Finnish organisations, tell about it in the Idea Bank and support other expatriate Finns in their preparations for the centenary.
    The Performer Bank provides singers, musicians, bands, choirs, dancers, theatre groups, lecturers, speakers and others a forum to offer their expertise to expatriate Finnish organisations. Organisers of events can contact performers directly in the Performer Bank.

    The Material Bank includes useful website links to help you find information on Finland for expatriate Finns. If you know good websites, please share them with us.

    Welcome to our new website, we hope you enjoy them!
    Share the link with others and add it to your homepage!
    We are active also in Facebook: You will find our open group under Suomi 100 Maailmalla. Remember to join the group!

    Suomi 100 Maailmalla – Finland 100 Worldwide is the joint project of the Finland Society/Suomi-Seura ry, Ministry to Finns Abroad (National Church Council, Evangelical Lutheran Church of Finland), and the Institute of Migration. It is also supported by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland and the Finnish Seamen´s Mission. Finland 100 Worldwide has been accepted to be included in the official Finland 100 programme.
