Hei Hei  Carl !

Covington - Sunday  October 19th 2008
Finland Calling came calling at Covington this past Sunday when Carl Pellonpaa hosted a Suomi Kutsuu  Dance sponsored by the Covington,  parks and recreation department.  Finlanders and their friends came to dance all afternoon to the music of the Polka Drifters a really great band! The Polka Drifters played a wide variety of music including Country,  swing waltzes and of course Polkas!  Ron Masters does a great job as the band's singer.  Often band singers just get the job done, but Ron does a great job  as does the rest of band.
There was an abundance of awesome refreshments and there was also a bake sale to tempt you off your diet.
