Alumni dinner and museum visit, Kansas City, MO, May 2010

In May 2010, several alumni met together with FC staff at one of the well- known barbecue restaurants in Kansas City’s historic Country Club Plaza.  Afterwards they walked to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art and viewed the building and its works of art.

It was at dinner that the idea surfaced to mount a Friends of Fulbright Finland alumni art exhibit at the upcoming 2011 FinnFest in San Diego.  Both Cherie and Karen entered their works in the exhibit and Cherie and Suzanne jointly prepared a successful grant application to the Finlandia Foundation to help fund the exhibit.  Alumni dinners can have a ripple effect!
