At the Rautaruukki (now SSAB) coke plant opening celebration we performed two songs, Aapo Similä's Northern toilers jubilee song and the Russian Folk Song Viburnum (Snowball viburnum) blossoms.
The high-ranking guests enjoyed our performance and during the applause, the singers' attention was drawn to the large hands of the President of our Republic. Finland was then in safe hands!

We offer our sincere condolences to family and friends.
