Celebrating St. Urho in Iron County With Dorothy and the Boys

Slide Show

KIMBALL - Little Finland in Kimball, was the scene  of Sunday’s celebration of St. Urho’s Day. Gogebic and Iron County Finlanders spent the afternoon listening and dancing to the great music of Dorothy and the Boys. The musical group plays and variety of music for their audience which includes polkas, country and western and vintage popular songs.

Just as their Ontonagon counterparts the night before, a large group gathered for this year’s celebration. There was plenty of purple to be seen at this venue. The festivities also included a guest performance by Accordionist, Gary Schleis who entertained during the band’s break. Gary is a great musician who told us that he often entertains at Little Finland.

During the lunch break there was a 50/50 drawing. The winner of the drawing was Arnie from Wakefield, who generously donated the money to “Little Finland”. Pictured with Arnie wearing the yellow 50/50 shirt is Steve Schurtter

On hand at Sunday’s event was a Phil a student from Northland College. Phil is a native American who is working on his thesis. He needed to spend one day with a different cultural group. He certainly did that and by day’s end Phil was dancing polkas and waltzes alike. Dorothy’s music will do that to you!
