    Description: Get your stew pots ready the 2017 Mojakka Cook-off is next month. The date is Saturday, September 16th and once again you can put your skills to the test by entering and eating. This year the judging is People’s Choice so it’s in your hands, or taste buds, to decide who takes the coveted spots.

    Autumn Fest will be outside under the ranvintola (weather permitting). There will be raffle prizes and games not to mention 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners.

    The bar will be open and dinner is from 5pm to 7pm so come hungry! Entries should be dropped off between 2pm-4pm and the mojakka should be in a crockpot.

    Our own Dennis Burke, always popular with the crowds, will be back again this year playing during dinner.

    As an added bonus the lively music of the duo “Vellamo” will entertain us in the dancehall from 7:30pm until 8:30pm. You may recall an earlier visit of this successful duo with the retro style recalling the likes of Judy Collins, etc.). They are currently touring the US and you can check them out on: or

    We are lucky to have many applicants so we will share their stories during the cook-off event. We are grateful to be remembered by Edwin Elkhill. Because Edwin cared so much about our younger generation he provided a means to help them achieve their goals. Dan Linick as Executor, has honored his wishes by overseeing a generous donation from Edwin to our Scholarship Fund. Our kids are the direct beneficiaries.

    So please join us in celebrating our kids. Prepay tickets are available at a reduced price of $10 for all-you-can-eat Mojakka and the performance by the lively duo Vellamo. You can get your tickets from Mary Barie. At the door it is still a bargain the price is $12 for both or $6 for each event. Children 12 years and under are a flat fee of $5.

    Come hungry, come to hear the entertainment and come to celebrate our kids! We’ll see you Saturday, September 16th!
