Latest News

In memory of

Kosti Uusikartano

Sadly, we have lost a beloved Cultural Society member, Kosti Uusikartano. He passed away on 10 February, 2017. Kosti was one of our most stalwart volunteers, always ready to help out with any job, bringing his radiant smile and friendship to brighten the task. A talented dancer, Olympic-level cross-country skier, outdoorsman, and keen historian, Kosti had much to offer and was active in several groups at the Scandinavian Centre. He will be sorely missed.

The Celebration of Life for Kosti is to take place at the Scandinavian Community Centre, on either Saturday evening, 11 March, or Sunday afternoon, 12 March. We will post the final date as soon as we hear it.
