Welcome to FFCPC Website,Members and Friends of Finland!
The fall is definitely on in Finland again. The picture looks upstream into Vantaa river on the bridge across Vantaankoski on a cool, dry fall day. Some leaves have already fallen and the others are showing fall colors.
Two FFCPC Board members are also Trustees on Finlandia Foundation National Board. Dirk Schulbach has served as the Treasurer since 2014 and Katariina Lehtonen was elected in 2015. We are well represented!2015 is the 150-year anniversary of Jean Sibelius birth. FFCPC celebrated the event with a concert and dinner.
