BRANTWOOD – The Knox Creek Heritage Center (KCHC) will hold its annual Finnish Independence Day celebration in Brantwood this weekend.

The event will be held at the Brantwood Community Center, located at the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 8 and County Rd. D north, Brantwood, on Saturday, Dec. 2.

Mojakka, a Finnish stew cooked in an old cast iron kettle over a wood fire outdoors, will be served beginning at 1 p.m. Homemade bread and pulla, a traditional Finnish cardamom bread, will be available for purchase.

A program featuring Native American storyteller and poet Michael Laughing Fox Charette will be held.

KCHC President Kevin Wollemann reminded organization members to send in annual membership dues and said KCHC is always looking for new members and volunteers to help maintain the several buildings on its museum grounds, located at N4517 W. Knox Rd., Brantwood.

Wollemann said the organization will be seeking help on numerous projects in the spring, including finishing the inside walls in the kitchen area of the pavilion and installing kitchen cabinets and a sink and stove from the basement of the main house in the pavilion.
