A Runeberg Celebration

We are commemorating the birthday, February 5th, of Finland's national poet

chronicled the life of the soldiers as well as that of common folk in Finland during the

war of 1808-09 between Sweden and Russia; the war which 200 years ago resulted

in Finland gaining statehood.
