The end of the year is nearing and we will be off celebrating and holidaying with family and friends but before we do, we still have a couple of upcoming events at the Finnish Hall over the next few weeks.

This Sunday, on the 2nd of December, we celebrate our Independence by remembering those that bravely fought and through ‘sisu’ managed to maintain it through the many years.
The ceremony starts at 12 noon with a church service followed by celebrations.

Next weekend, on the 9th of December, is the Family Christmas Party. More details to come.

We are also going to be representing our Society at the Scandinavian Christmas Bazaar ( – two days brimming with all things Christmas and Scandic, with an Aussie twist. Come and say hei! The Swedish church is also looking for volunteers to help with the bazaar, email if you are interested.
