Finnish Embassy is Very Generous

Cheryl Miller, Racine, Wisconsin, made an exciting find when, while planning the Hentila Family Reunion for next summer, she contacted the Finnish Embassy in Washington DC for help. Miller’s husband’s mother’s side is Finnish, and she was looking for ways to celebrate the family’s ethnicity. She received posters, music books, CD’s of folk and classical music, books about Finland and its history, cookbooks and flags to decorate a table, and more. It cost her nothing and was shipped within days of her request. Foreign tourist boards can also supply information about the country that represents your heritage. Send a brief summary about your reunion and how you plan to celebrate your ethnicity to the embassy or tourism bureau of your choice.
