NEW! NEEDS-BASED SCHOLARSHIPS FROM KIPINÄ KERHO A generous grant from Kipinä Kerho (Finn Spark) increases Salolampi’s opportunity to make needsbased financial help available to more villagers. For many years, the Salolampi Foundation has received similar annual contributions to the scholarship fund from Finn Spark, but this new grant allows us to expand our efforts even further. In cooperation with Concordia Language Villages, this fund will be incorporated into an established needs-based program for the Foundation. Kipinä Kerho (now Finn Spark, Inc.) is a unique Finnish-American club founded in Washington D.C. in 1949, inspired by Edith Harth and like-minded women born in Finland or of Finnish descent. Their aim was to promote Finnish culture and language, and to offer material assistance to their wartorn homeland. Today, the mission of Finn Spark is to: • engage in charitable, educational, and cultural activities • raise funds to benefit the elderly and children’s causes • give scholarships to educational and cultural institutions in Finland and the United States. Proceeds from these undertakings have grown steadily and now fund medical, educational, and elderly care institutions and scholarships in the U.S. and Finland. Finn Spark president Kekku Lehtonen writes about the desire to serve a specific Salolampi need: “We do not want to get involved in how you split the funds. That is up to you.” The deadline for applying is February 28, 2013. For information and an application, contact Concordia Language Villages at 800-222-4750, ext. 4, or www.concordialanguagevillages.org. INQUIRE EARLY! (See Check These Scholarships on page 3 for a description of the Kipinä Kerho Scholarships.)

Reflections… From Our New Dean By Amy Iida Tervola Hultberg, Salolampi Dean Heta, Aarre, and I were thrilled to share our first summer as a family with so many friends of Salolampi. In this role, Salolampi really

never begins or ends, but rather there are pauses. As we began our summer planning, I had the good fortune of meeting new and returning staff members via paper and electronic communication. We also used technology and social networking tools to build a virtual community of counselors prior to the official start of summer. This allowed us to share good ideas before physically being on site and making the most of our physical preparation time once we all arrived. Our village boasts great rates of returning villagers, and we are very proud of how welcoming villagers and staff are towards brand new families and villagers. The ability to freshen past friendships with new ones proves to be a critical skill for many facets of the villager’s life. I observed many moments of life-skill building among villagers while acquiring the Finnish language this summer. Of course, Aarre and I also accompanied perhaps the youngest villager on site this summer. Our infant daughter Heta is a fortunate Finn to have so many good friends at Salolampi. As parents and teachers, we are so grateful to all families who shared their children with us this summer. We are thankful for the opportunity to learn and grow together!

DEAR SALOLAMPI – letters from villagers… The funny thing that happened to me at Salolampi was when I was walking back from the sauna, a deer jumped right in front of me! I wanted to go to Salolampi because my family speaks Finnish. – Caroline (2011 villager) [Excerpted and edited, drawing by Caroline]

Salolampi! The first thing that comes to mind is: What an AMAZING camp! I love going to Salolampi for many reasons: friends, GOOD food, awesome counselors, schooling. Kiitos! – Abigail Jokela (2011 villager) Monet kiitokset lahjoituksestanne Salolammelle! Oli kiva käydä kielileirillä läpseni kanssa. Vaikka puhunkin Suomenkieltä läpsilleni, Salolampi on ilahduttava paikka ja kokemus varsinkin lapsilleni. Heille jää mukavia muistoja! Toivomme Teille paljon SISUa ja SIUNAUKSIA Salolammen menestykseen! – Kiitäen ja Rakkaan Terveisin, Minna Silvola Richardson, Annika ja Benjami (2012 Family Week) [English translation is available at www.Salolampi.org]

Salolampi Scholarship Phonathon 2012 November 13, 14, and 15 (Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday) Salolampi Foundation Board members and friends of Salolampi will make hundreds of calls nationwide again this year for the scholarship program from the phones at the Lutheran Community Foundation in the Thrivent Financial building in downtown Minneapolis or from their homes. This year, your support is more critical than ever. Keeping the Finnish heritage alive for future generations is a truly worthwhile legacy. Currently every villager receives scholarship assistance to reduce the real cost of attendance. The Phonathon began many years ago when everyone had land line phones. Today, many people use cell phones and communicate via electronic media. This is a challenge to us. Consequently, we will reach out to folks in three ways this year. You may receive an email message if we know your email address, OR you may receive a letter if we do not have a working telephone number or email for you, OR we will continue to try to call our Finnish friends for whom we have a working phone numbers. A postcard will be mailed in late October or early November as a reminder of an upcoming call, email, or letter. If you will not be available or cannot be reached, you may send contributions directly to the Salolampi Foundation, P.O. Box 14480, Minneapolis, MN 55414-0480. You may donate online via our secure website: www.salolampi.org – click on “Phonathon Donation.” You may use Thrivent Choice Dollars for scholarship contributions. The Phonathon is carried out by volunteers. We need volunteers for the mailing, data entry, and calling. The first two tasks need to be done in the Twin Cities, but calling can be done from anywhere in the country. If you can call from home or the Thrivent location, or can help with data entry or the mailing, please contact Linda Warpula Davis (763-4203237, ldavismn@hotmail.com) or Ruthann Swanson (612-788 3905, ruthann@ars-services.com). Please help send villagers to Salolampi to experience and learn more about our rich heritage.

Living Salolampi By Amy (Iida) Tervola Hultberg, Salolampi Dean Summer at Salolampi is always a magical opportunity offering new and returning friendships and unique memory making. This summer was exactly that for villagers and staff alike. We learned and tried new activities, methods, and ideas. Of course, some of the traditional Salolampi activities are so critical to our programming that we must participate in opportunities such as kesämökki päivä two or three times each summer! We had strong enrollment in our one- and two-week sessions this summer. This provides evidence of the powerful beginning families experience in family programming and the additional opportunity we offer through our high school credit program. We worked hard to begin rethinking curriculum this summer as well as offering intentional cultural education to all vilGreat friendships are made at Salolampi! lagers. Our focus on meals and cultural authenticity will continue to be an area of growth and change. You will find that our Village Page on www.concordialanguagevillages.org is active throughout the academic year; so when you are lonesome for Salolampi in March, there will be new photos and videos to carry you until your next summer session! Since I referenced kesämökki päivä earlier, I also want to let you know about a small milestone we want to celebrate next summer. Our “new” Salolampi site will be 20 years old next summer; and we want to invite former Salolampi staff, villagers and friends to join us for kesämökki päivä on June 23, 2013.

Miriam Hendrickson Holds Adult Week Attendance Record

The Hendrickson family: Randy Rami and Michael Mikko Hendrickson, Cheryl Aune Lowery, Jean Kylliki Hendrickson, Juli Impi Hunt, Duane Vanja, and Miriam Mirja Hendrickson.

Miriam Hendrickson holds a special place in the hearts of Salolampi Adult Week participants—and holds the attendance record as well, having completed more than 30 sessions. Miriam (Mirja) and her husband George (Yrjö) participated in many Adult Week sessions together, spring and fall. After George passed away, Miriam continued to attend, along with family members from Arizona, California, Delaware, Illinois, and Wisconsin—plus France and China. Her adult children and grandchildren and their spouses have come to dozens of sessions with Miriam, the family matriarch, who turned 93 this year. She and six members of her family were among the 30 participants at the Fall Adult Week in September 2012. “It’s a real treasure to be here with relatives,” said Miriam’s niece, Cheryl (Aune) Lowery, from Wisconsin, explaining why she returned to Adult Week for a third time. Nine-time attendee Jean (Kyllikki) Hendrickson, Miriam’s daughter-in-law, added, “You can have a week-long family reunion at Salolampi.” Miriam summed it up with these words: “This is my second home.”

PLAN TO ATTEND A TALKOOT IN 2013 May 10–12 and September 13–15 By Paavo Taipale, Director

Volunteers are a vital part of talkoot.

A great way to support Salolampi is to volunteer at a spring or fall work weekend (talkoot). Past work weekends have had over 20 volunteers at each. At recent weekends, floors have been repaired, picnic benches built, windows washed, gardens weeded, wood split, staining and painting done, and coat hooks built. Many other projects have enhanced the programs at Salolampi. There are tasks for all ability levels. Food, lodging, and sauna are provided. There are special projects planned for future work weekends. If you have expertise in masonry, painting, or carpentry and are willing to donate that skill, please contact me. Talkoot starts Friday evening and ends Sunday at noon. Bring linens, a towel, and any tools for the skills that you have. RSVP to Paavo.Taipale@salolampi.org
