South Thomaston — The centerpiece of this summer’s exhibit at Finnish Heritage House will be the Honor Roll of Veterans currently displayed in the Mietinen Room at the back of the Finnish Congregational Church on the River Road in South Thomaston.

However, there are a number of veterans missing from that document and it is hoped that information regarding their service in World War II will be forthcoming and can be included in the exhibit.

If anyone has any material regarding any Finnish-American veterans including photos, newspaper clippings, documents, awards, and certificates, please contact Steve Gifford at 4 Park Avenue West, Brewer, ME 04412 or naskali2@hotmail.com or 989-1971.
