Breaking News…

Salolampi Foundation Offers “Finnish Partner Organization Scholarships” The Salolampi Foundation is expanding the reach of its scholarship program with a new plan to offer funds to Salolampi villagers through sponsoring Finnish Partner Organizations. The Foundation will provide $100 for each villager who applies with the sponsorship of a Finnish Partner Organization. Villagers may apply through multiple Partner Organizations and will be eligible to receive scholarships on a first-come-first-served basis until the budgeted funds have been depleted. “We as a foundation exist to support Salolampi, and we feel the best way to do that is to make it easier for more kids to attend camp,” explained Salolampi Foundation president Tiina Watts. By reducing financial obstacles that might prevent families from choosing Salolampi as an option for their children, the Foundation hopes to increase enrollment with the ultimate goal of reaching full capacity for all summer sessions.

What is a Finnish Partner Organization? Any established organization that promotes Finnish language, heritage, or cultural awareness may sponsor villagers. “Our hope is to fill the village this summer and also to build lasting relationships with heritage organizations that have the common goal of maintaining Finnish cultural awareness for generations to come,” said Watts. Further, if Finnish Partner Organizations will provide financial support from their own budgets for additional scholarships, the Salolampi Foundation will match this support dollar for dollar by increasing Partner Organization scholarships to $150 per villager, per organization. The Salolampi Foundation invites Finnish organizations to register as a partner in sponsoring Salolampi villagers. To get started, organization representatives are invited to email the Salolampi Foundation at info@salolampi.org.

WHO ARE YOU SENDING TO SALOLAMPI? By Tiina Watts, President, Salolampi Foundation I love Salolampi. My non-Finnish husband loves Salolampi. My children love Salolampi. Salolampi is a magical place. There are many families and individuals who can say the same thing. Good and amazing things happen every summer, and we want more young people to join us for this magic. 1999 was my oldest daughter Leila’s first year at Salolampi. She attended each summer for four years, as well as many Family Fun Weekends where I taught, and then was a counselor for one summer. She wants to bring her husband and two daughters to the Family Week someday because, she said, “I want them to see a place that means so much to me and a place where I learned so much.” She wants the people she loves to share the magic of Salolampi. After our January 25 Salolampi Board of Directors, there is hope for families like hers on a limited budget. If you can find

a Finnish organization to sponsor you, the Salolampi Foundation will give you a matching scholarship. If they sponsor you with scholarship help, the Foundation will match their donation up to $150. Hopefully, more villagers can attend Salolampi this year and in the future. Spread the news of Salolampi support to friends and relatives. See www.salolampi.org for more details or “like” Salolampi on Facebook to get updates. The Salolampi Board is working hard to make your visit to Salolampi a realization. We know that you will love it! If you are member of a Finnish organization, my question to you is, “Who are you sending to Salolampi?” If you are a parent or a grandparent, I ask you the same question, “Who are you sending to Salolampi?”

OPI Volume 2 is Available By Steve Leppälä, Salolampi Director Salolampi Foundation is pleased to announce the publication of OPI (Learn) Volume 2 by former Salolampi Dean, Larry Lauri Saukko. The book is based upon monthly “OPI” columns published in the Finnish American Reporter. OPI Volume 1, published a few years ago, was a huge success and in fact, it sold out! The front cover of the new book features a photograph of a mural that was painted on an exterior wall by a team of village staff at Salolampi during the summer of 2013. The mural depicts a very fun and lively rendition of the Salolampi village. The book includes 52 one-page chapters, some based on themes, some on random collections of sentences, where readers can learn many interesting Finnish sentences and phrases and also test their knowledge of English to Finnish or Finnish to English. Publication of this new book was assisted through a grant from Finlandia Foundation National. As with the first book, proceeds from OPI Volume 2 will go to the Salolampi Scholarship Fund. The book is available from the Salolampi.org web site and at festivals and events where the Salolampi Foundation booth is present. Many Salolampi Foundation Board members also have extra copies of the book available. The suggested donation for each book is $10. When ordering through www.salolampi.org, one book plus shipping is $13 ($24 for two books; $35 for three; larger quantities for shipment are also available, please inquire.) Retail outlets selling Finnish or other Nordic items may also acquire the book for resale at a reduced rate. Inquire by email to opi.vol.two@gmail.com for more information.

Expanded Scholarship for College & University Students By John (Jussi) Hanson, Director Last year Salolampi Foundation introduced a scholarship for college and university students to attend an Adult Week, Family Week, or Family Fun Weekend. This scholarship covered a 50 percent reduction in tuition. Last year, six students earned this scholarship. Brief interviews revealed that they enjoyed the whole Finnish language and cultural experience. Older participants enjoyed the challenge of learning activities and sports activities with younger college students. Salolampi Foundation again offers a 50 percent reduction in tuition scholarship to a college/university student who wishes to attend Salolampi Adult Week, Family Week, or Family Fun Weekend. To qualify, a student must have attended or graduated from a college or university within a calendar year. A student may receive only one scholarship per year, and scholarships are limited to the first 12 qualifying applicants. http://www.salolampi.org/applications/2013/Universitystudent scholarshipapp2013.pdf

COLLEGE STUDENT RESPONSES… From Ruth Bruce: I loved Salolampi Adult Week! It gave me a chance to be with so many people who had the same love for Finland. I learned a lot in my classes… and a lot from activities. Everything from meals to free time to singing time was filled with Finland. When I went home, I had songs stuck in my head and still… I find myself humming them.

A favorite memory of college and university students: singing songs as the sun sets on the lake.

From Meghan Wellmann:

From Kate Eloranta:

I went to Salolampi in high school and did not realize how much I missed it until coming back… three years later! I had an amazing week… it was great to meet so many new people who were also learning Finnish and were interested in Finnish culture. It was the perfect opportunity to keep practicing my Finnish skills.

Spending a week at Salolampi… was such a great experience. I got to put my knowledge of Finnish into practice…. I loved how welcoming Salolampi was, and it was the perfect environment for bringing all ages together through music, dance, crafts, and sharing our love of Finnish language and culture. My favorite memory… was singing songs around the campfire, enjoying the sunset, and listening to the loons on the lake.

Learning to play the kantele is a popular villager activity. Salolammen poro – a special Salolampi reindeer.

Spring & Fall Adult Weeks By Susan Susanna Harstad, Adult Week Program Leader

May 11–17, 2014 and September 6–12, 2014 College students joined the May 2013 Adult Week villagers for the first time, thanks to the efforts of Adult Week participant and board member John Jussi Hanson. We hope that the trend to attract young adult villagers to the adult program continues! At the spring and fall Adult Weeks, participants from every corner of the U.S. as well as Canada enjoy sauna, kantele music, dance, kyykkä or mölkky games while our kitchen staff prepares delicious Finnish cuisine. Our talented and motivated staff members provide instruction in small and large groups tailored specifically to your language abilities, ranging from absolute beginning Finnish learners to advanced speakers. The staff make sure that sessions include ample opportunity for practicing speaking Finnish as well as meeting new people and having a memorable time. Please consider attending a Salolampi Adult Week, and bring a family member or friend. Also, check out the scholarships that are reported in this newsletter. We have a fun, Finnish time at Adult Week. For information, contact Sara Williams at swilliams@cord.edu or call 800-450-2214.

Generous Donors Do It Again! By Linda Warpula Davis & Ruthann Swanson, Co-chairs, Phonathon The 2013 Phonathon was a success, owing to the efforts of the 50 volunteers who called 1,800 people across the country AND the generosity of the donors. Kiitos, thank you, everyone. For many years now, the Salolampi Foundation has used an annual Phonathon to raise money to give a scholarship to every youth who attends the Salolampi Language Village. Our volunteer callers enjoy making personal contact with prospective donors to share news of Salolampi and its exciting new programs. Are there additional effective ways to go about raising scholarship funds? Do you have ideas that we can consider? We would appreciate hearing about them. We are “committed to sustaining the Finnish language and culture” by helping every youth afford to attend Salolampi by providing scholarships.

Genealogy 1.0: Did you know that Matt Damon is part Finn?
