Friends of the Finland Community

A nonprofit organization

By far the biggest project our group has worked to implement since our formation in 2007 has been the project to build a new community center in Finland, MN. In partnership with Lake County and the Town of Crystal Bay, the 10 year, $2 million project was recently completed, and our nonprofit now manages the new building on behalf of the Township. Called the Clair Nelson Center, the new facility boasts a geothermal heating system, solar photovoltaic power, and a high-performance building envelope to conserve energy and minimize operating costs.

In addition to the myriad community and rental activities that take place at the new Center, Friends of the Finland Community is developing the facility into an incubator for economic development in the area. Our commercial kitchen is County, MDA, and USDA certified for anyone looking for a venue to develop a food product for sale. We also offer wi-fi and public computers, business planning classes, with future plans for much more.

The Center also has growing youth program and community education classes. Your gift helps us create more programs in the Center.
