Come celebrate 4th of July with Frontier!

It’s time for Frontier’s summer picnic, where we’ll celebrate both the National Day of Canada (1st of July) and the US Independence Day (4th of July). Kaisaniemi Park will be our picnic venue (or the New Student Building if it rains).

WHAT: Frontier Picnic
WHEN: 4 July, 2013 from 4 pm onwards
WHERE: Kaisaniemi Park (or the New Student Building if it rains)
WHY: To celebrate the great North American Countries! + good food and company

While we wait for the picnic, here’s some photos from last month’s Spring Tea!
