Major Aino Muikku, our new regional commander, presents a gift to Evelyn which many of the people at the party contributed toward.

It was a beautiful Estonian wool sweater, which will be perfect for the long winters.

Another view of the sweater.

One wonderful Estonian tradition is that on birthdays you present the birthday person with a flower and a greeting. It's hard to tell from this dark picture (that's Evelyn hugging Toivo on the left), but there was a line of people streching out the door waiting to greet her. It was very moving to see.
