Visit to the Finnish Ambassador's residence

Members of the CNS received a very warm welcome from His Excellency Jari Vilén at his residence on May 7. We heard how the beautiful structure was designed by students of Frank Lloyd Wright, with a second storey for living quarters seamlessly added by a Finnish architect. His talk on the current political situation in Europe was truly engrossing and the implications for Canada were certainly thought-provoking. Our members mingled and chatted for some time following the talk, enjoying champagne and delicacies in the beautiful house and garden. We are grateful to the Ambassador (pictured below addressing the group) for his very kind hospitality on our visit, which was one of the highlights of our 2023-24 season.
