Late Laskiainen - Pea Soup Party - Lake Crabtree Park, Cary - on Saturday, March 26th, 2022, from 12 - 3pm

Laskianen is the Finnish word for Shrove Tuesday, which is also known as Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras.
We will meet at the Dogwood shelter at Crabtree Park, Cary to enjoy hot pea soup, special Finnish home-made desserts, beautiful spring weather, and each otherís company.

   Coordinator is needed.

  Evite invitation with more information will be sent closer to the event.

Directions To Lake Crabtree

Take Exit 285 from I-40 (Aviation Parkway) and follow signs toward Morrisville.  The entrance to the park is well marked.  After you enter the park, follow the narrow road until you see signs toward the shelters.  Proceed until you see blue and white balloons and the sign to the Dogwood Shelter.

Marimekko’s Tasaraita shirt

One year at the Laskiainen Party, we took this great picture.

:

Let us take another, bigger one this year. So, I ask everybody who has a Marimekko’s Tasaraita shirt to wear it.

If you do not have a Tasaraita, please, wear some other Finnish shirt if you have, like this shirt Jukka wore last year: “A Finn’s Feelings.”
