ASTORIA — The Finnish Brotherhood Auxiliary invites everyone to a laksloda luncheon and bake sale of Finnish pastries at 11:30 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 18, at the historic Suomi Hall in Uniontown, 244 West Marine Drive.
The luncheon includes the traditional salmon/potato casserole (laksloda), beets, peas or beans, rye bread, rieska, apple crisp and coffee.
The cost of the meal is $12 per person; for those hungry enough to eat seconds, it’s all-you-can-eat. Food is usually gone by 1:30 p.m., so come and enjoy this yearly lunch early. (Take-out is available for those who can’t stay).
The bake sale will include Finnish pastries such as prune tarts, rieska, pulla (cardamon braids), Finnish ribbon cookies, gingerbread cakes, etc.
Proceeds go toward maintaining the hall and supporting Finnish culture in the community.
