Niilo turns 82

Niilo celebrated his 82nd birthday at the homestead with his Fairbanks family (Chena, Gary, Ben, Heather, Joan, Alex, and Dane, photos above L. to R.). Heather cooked up a fine spread. Niilo certainly enjoyed the dinner and the dessert even more. Finnish pulla bread made by Joan topped with ice cream and a side dish of tapioca.  Birthday presents included chocolate orange and raspberry sticks, music CDs and a CD player for his room at Pioneer’s Home.  If anyone has music they think he would enjoy, feel free to send on.
