    DEER HUNTERS

    In the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, they create some of the finest foods

    known to man. Beef pasties and Trenary Toast are two that come to mind.

    Both are staples in the deer camps in the UP.

    For those of you that will be hunting down south here but still want the

    pleasure of eating these hearty foods, you‘re in luck, don’t ya’ know.

    The FCA will be baking UP-recipe pasties again on Saturday, November

    9. Call your order in early to the Finnish Center at (248) 478-6939 or sign

    up in the FCA lobby. The cost is $5 per pasty and the proceeds help sup-

    port the mission of the Finnish Center.

    Want to save 10% on your order? Simply email to fca-

    pasties@comcast.net. Be sure to include your name, phone number, and

    the number of pasties you are ordering. To receive the discount, pasties

    must be picked up at the FCA between noon and 4:00 p.m. on Saturday,

    November 9.

    As always, Trenary Toast is available in the FCA gift shop. Check the

    newsletter for hours. [Pasties and Trenary Toast will also be available to

    non-hunters as well.]

    VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED to help with the pasty bake on both Fri-

    day and Saturday. Contact Paul Rajala at prajala@comcast.net, call the

    FCA at (248) 478-6939, or sign up on the volunteer list in the lobby.

    NOVEMBER IN THE GARDENS

    The leaves have fallen and the air is crisp but

    there is much yet to do and see in the gardens.

    November is still quite busy for us. We are dead-

    heading blooms, adding mulch, cleaning up the

    vegetable gardens, and generally preparing all the

    gardens for winter.

    Several garden club members attended the Farm-

    ington Hills Beautification award ceremony in

    late October where the gardens won another

    beautification award for which we are very grate-

    ful. We also participated in the Fall flea market in

    an attempt to raise funds to recoup some of the

    monies spent to purchase mulch, flowers, and

    peat for the gardens this year. Unfortunately the

    Garden Club has not received any substantial do-

    nations this year so the garden club members

    have been forced to spend their own funds

    ($500) to add these items to the gardens.

    We now have a new patio walkway outside the

    woodshop installed by the scouts as an eagle

    scout project which compliments the boardwalk

    to the wetlands. This makes a nice entrance to the

    patio area and a lovely place to join us for our

    Monday morning 10:30 coffee break. You will

    find us still there throughout the month of No-

    vember.

    If you have any questions or comments or items

    to donate please contact me at [734] 546-5190 or

    gaylegullen@hotmail.com

    DID YOU KNOW -

    The Finnish Center has a Scholarship Committee?

    Last Year the committee awarded five (5) college

    scholarships to applicants with some Finnish family

    background?

    Donations can be made to the Scholarship Fund at

    the Finnish Center? Think about it.

    SOCIAL COMMITTEE

    What a joy and pleasure we had at the September

    monthly luncheon. Listening from the kitchen to

    all the laughter and chit-chat makes all the work

    in preparing the food worth our efforts as we

    move forward with our Finnish Center. For the

    next luncheon remember to sign up on or before

    Monday, October 28. An extra $1.00 will be

    charged if you don’t make a reservation. See you

    there?

    The September winners are as follows 50/50

    Fritz Putkela, Ann Makila, Bob Buchhane,

    Dolores Rajala, Marlene Ruuskanen, Vi Hakala,

    Marge Salo, Eunice Gould, Mia Lamminen, Ter-

    ry Ball, Eva Bessonen and Barbara Whitty.

    Good going!

    IMPORTANT: Anyone working in the kitchen

    needs to attend the class on Health and Food re-

    quirements, taught by our Health Inspector

    Randy. Time is 11 am October 31. If you are

    unable to attend, see me for another time to

    schedule another meeting. There will be a sign

    up sheet in the Lobby.

    The Auction and Silent Auction was great. We

    shared a simple lunch and Freddie Liimatta did

    another great job. There are so many to thank, so

    Thank You to All who helped Terry and me to

    make it successful!
