Our speaker today was Hilla Honkamakila, our exchange student from Finland.
Hilla said that Finland shares borders with Sweden, Russia and Norway. She lives on the northern part of Finland by the Baltic Sea. The temperature varies from 72 to 13 degrees Fahrenheit. They have a lot of northern lights which they call Fire Fox’s Tails. The majority of Finland is forested and they have a lot of wild animals that live there. Hilla presented President Annalise von Borstel with a flag from the Rotary Club of Finland. She also introduced her calendars which she created the artwork for. She is selling them to pay for her trip to Hawaii.
