For the third year in a row, FHM members travelled to Bill Newbury's home in Geauga Township to celebrate Juhannus, the longest day of the year.

As usual, nothing but the best foods and beverages were served, in keeping with our practices.

The following pictures depict the event, along with the "kokko" a huge bonfire. Member Heikki Penttila and Bill Newbery took about three hours to construct it, as you will be able to tell from the pictures.
