We are delighted to welcome back old friends, Lembit Nei and his family. Professor Lembit Nei is a familiar face to many of us who attended our KFES events on October 6, 2013, and January 5, 2014. Lembit was accompanied by his wife and daughter, and he served as our guest speaker at the January event. Professor Nei is now a Senior Researcher and Professor Emeritus, Tartu College School of Engineering, Tallinn University of Technology, and he serves as Director of the NGO Environmental Protection Institute. Currently, Professor Nei is spending one month in the US as a Michigan State University – Erasmus+ academic visitor. Professor Emeritus Nei is a recent recipient of the Distinguished Service Medal of Tartu. Professor Nei will share his impressions on “what’s going on in Estonia.” Let’s give Professor Nei and his family a warm welcome.

Because the private room can accommodate up to 50 (and the adjoining outdoor balcony can accommodate 20) , please email Heikki Joonsar, Treasurer, to let him know if you are planning to attend so we may confirm we have enough space.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
