As we prepare for the upcoming mid-summer and sauna season, we want to invite you to share your favorite sauna memories.

During this informal and casual alumni get-together, we will hear from Sarah Flynn, 2017-18 Fulbright Distinguished Award in Teaching grantee, who with her husband built a wood burning sauna in their backyard. Sarah is in the process of launching a small sauna spa business. Join us to hear more about Sarah's dream of bringing the authentic Finnish sauna to the Denver Metro area!

After the presentation, you will have an opportunity to share your memories, stories, and experiences about the Finnish sauna. Feel free to tell about your first encounter with a smoke sauna, show photos of your favorite sauna, or share tips on where to enjoy the best löyly - in Finland or in the U.S.!

Registration is required, and space is limited!
