The Consul General of Finland Jukka Leino and his lovely wife Mrs. Eeva Leino are graciously opening their stylish home for EuroCircle’s “Style of Finland” MidSummer Cocktail reception from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm. The official residence of the Consul General is a true tribute to Finnish architecture and especially Alvar Aalto & Eliel Saarinen. Most of the furniture is designed by these famous architects whose work many of us have admired at the MOMA. We can also admire Finnish contemporary art on the walls
