Thanks to members Greg Isola and Linda Mell for representing FGGMN at the Finnish Showcase, prior to one of Osmo Vänskä’s Farewell Concerts at Orchestra Hall on the evening of June 3. The Showcase was intended to promote our local Finnish organizations. Our table included a few photos from Finland, a takeaway with our website address and Linda brought along iittala candlesticks and all the items rested on a special tablecloth. The cloth was made in Finland from flax was grown on Linda’s grandmother’s family land. The flax was woven into linen and then loomed into the tablecloth.
