“Celebrating Finland’s centennial across the United States”
“Year 2017 marks Finland’s centennial. The theme of the year is “together” and we are looking forward to celebrating together with all Finns, Finnish-Americans and friends of Finland!
Though many centennial events will take place around the actual Independence Day on December 6, many individuals and organizations are arranging events throughout the year. To bring visibility to these events there will be a “Centennial Mascot” – a Traveling Sauna – moving from the West coast to the East coast during 2017. We hope our mascot will spread the news of Finland’s centennial and create some happy smiles on the U.S roads.
