A good night’s sleep, a shower (sometimes a sauna) and a nice home-cooked meal can really refresh a person.
Our first day then started and then continued with a busy but efficient schedule, in true Finnish fashion, with everything starting exactly on time.
We had a team meeting and newspaper interview at Restaurant Kruovi, where both Rotary clubs in town meet. We then walked 200 meters for a nice tour of the Kauhajoki Town Hall and a photo with the Mayor, and a presentation by Director of Administration, Mr. Markku Vahnanen. The city’s name, translated means “Spoon River” but bears no connection to Edgar Lee Masters.
