Finnish Midsummer Celebration
Finland obtained its Independance from Russia on December 6, 1917. Join the celebration at the German-America Friendship Garden, 1201 Constitution Ave. NW, Washington, DC, halfway between the Washington Monument and the White House. The Garden borders Constitution Avenue between 15th and 17th Streets. The celebration is hosted by the Embassy of Finland and is aimed at families and kids with Finnish games and activities as well as a Finnish dance group performance and a raffle. Come and meet Finnish and Finnish-American athletes. Team Ajattomat, the talented Finnish dance group, combines physical challenge with artistic expression. It performs every hour on the halfhour. Also, Finlandia Foundation National Capital Chapter, in light of Suomi 100, will be holding their summer gathering as part of the celebration. Open and free for everyone.
From: Matt Stafford, FIRST Global
FIRST Global is the inaugural International Robot Olympics for high school-age students that will be hosted in Washington D.C. at Constitution Hall July 16-18. Former US Navy Admiral and Congressman Joe Sestak heads FIRST Global. Its mission is to stimulate STEM education through the sport of robotics.
160 nations are participating this year in FIRST Global, each with one student team, and a number of Scandinavian teams will be participating. First Global and the students of these countries would very much like to see a strong Scandinavian-American presence at this event, cheering on the team as they take the stage, and play their games July 17-18, and at the Opening Ceremony on the evening of July 16.
There are teams from Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Sweden that are participating. Many of these students are coming to America for the first time and a warm reception from the Scandinavian community here would mean the world to them.
As an ASA member, you are also being asked if you might be interested to serve as a Team Ambassador for one of the Scandinavia countries within Constitution Hall where the games will be played. The Team Ambassador is asked to make sure the students get where they need to be on time within Constitution Hall and to ensure they feel comfortable during their first visit to America.
