Dear members and friends of KFES!

Instead of meeting at the Holiday Inn in Clearwater, the Estonian Society of Central Florida (Kesk Florida Eesti Selts) met on Sunday, May 2, 2010 at Mattison’s Riverside Restaurant 1200 1st Ave. W, in Bradenton at the usual time, 2:00 p.m. Each individual/couple ordered from the restaurant menu and paid his/her/their own lunch bill. A room was reserved for our members. We tried out the venue on May 2nd so we could decide if we would like to meet there for next year’s get-togethers. So, those who attended are now invited to offer their opinions! The food was delicious and the view wonderful!! Please email your feedback to Monika Orumaa Craig.

Please visit our Calendar of Events for upcoming opportunities to gather. Our next event is the celebration of Jaanipäev, June 26, 2010, from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm on Anna Maria Island. The next meetings of the Estonian Society of Central Florida (Kesk Florida Eesti Selts) are at 2:00 pm on October 3, 2010 and November 7, 2010.
