Celebrate Midsummer/ Juhannus with CFF

An invitation from the Canadian Friends of Finland to all Nordics:

A midsummer celebration is common to all Nordic countries. The Canadian Friends of Finland Ottawa invites all those who share this tradition to join us for our annual festivities.   We will host a barbeque feast at historic and picturesque Billings Estate, “under the tent” on the grounds.  Reservations and a good time are a must!  
In addition to the food and good company, we will have some entertainment and activities.  The Ottawa Finnish Singers will perform.  You can learn and partake in the Finnish game of lkky (prepare by reading rules below!).
The all-you-can-eat barbeque will again be catered by The Butchery, Ottawa’s purveyor of fine meats.  Menu will include the following:
  • beef, turkey or veggie burgers
  • European-style sausages (homemade by The Butchery)
  • selection of salads
  • assorted condiments
  • dessert (cake with strawberries) and coffee
  • non-alcoholic drinks
A selection of beer and wine will also be available.  Please don’t forget to order beer/wine tickets with your meal if you care to imbibe ($4 per ticket or 3 for $10).

Make your reservations by June 18th to receive dinner tickets at the price of $35!  You may register up until the 20th of June or purchase tickets at the door, but the price per ticket will then be $40.  Book and pay early and save!  We need to let our caterer know the expected numbers. We hope to see you there and look forward to a Nordic celebration of the summer solstice!
