How to find the performances online mentioned in June Uutiset, page 11
In the time it took to print the newsletter and finish the electronic version, the YouTube addresses  on page 11, "Good Stuff on the Internet," became inaccessible as printed. But you can find the items by searching for:
Sibelius Academy Big Band - Kaivantomiehen laulu
Lovely,cheerful folksingers perform a sad sad song.

J. Karjalainen - Kolme cowboyta
sung by its creator, this song is a new kind of Finnish American ballad--starting with the partitive singular form of "cowboy" (all of you students of the language understand why there is a "ta"!) and continuing in a classic style.

The Finnish American Cultural Activities (FACA) group of the Twin Cities (Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN) invites you to join our active schedule of programs and activities. FACA programs are free and open to the public. They take place on the third Friday of each month from September to May. An exception is December, when we invite you to celebrate a pre-Christmas pikkujoulu ("little Christmas") with other local Finnish groups.

FACA is a nonprofit educational organization that offers programs with a rich ethnic flavor: literature, music, travel, food, the immigrant culture and contemporary Finland. It is dedicated to preserving and promoting the cross-cultural heritage of Americans of Finnish ancestry.
Bad Weather Cancellation Policy: During inclement weather, check WCCO radio or Channel 4. If the ST. PAUL PUBLIC SCHOOLS are closed, the FACA event will be cancelled.
