Finnish your Dinner

A fun, casual dinner at the Scandinavian Centre in Burnaby, BC to celebrate Finland 100.

This will be a potluck dinner – so bring a dish to share! We will dine out on the deck, under the stars (weather permitting), so bring a sweater or a blanket if it’s a little chilly.

Organized by Vancouver Finlandia Club.
