‘Little Christmas’ to be celebrated

ISHPEMING — At 2 p.m. Sunday at Bethel Lutheran Church in Ishpeming, the Finlandia Foundation National Lake Superior Chapter, will hold a program to honor Finland’s 102nd Independence Day (on Dec. 6), and to celebrate “Little Christmas” or “Pikkujoulu.”

Music for the program will be provided by the duo of Tanja Stanaway on guitar and accordion, and Ken Holster on banjo. Howard Aalto will be there to play on his “huuliharppu,” a six-sided harmonica. Tanja’s Kids, five young students in her Finnish classes, will sing holiday songs for the group.

This gathering is open to all, members and friends alike. There is no charge for attending. A basket on the refreshment table will collect donations.

Membership in the FFN LSC may be renewed, or begun, at this meeting.
