It proved foundational in the broader American labor movement.  Finnish migrants\, who settled to the west in the Cokato and Annandale areas\, frequently returned to Minneapolis for work\, family\, and commerce.  Active rail lines and street cars allowed for inexpensive travel.  Finntown attracted businesses like Glenwood Inglewood Water\, Leef Bros. Laundry Services\, and Munsingwear\, all of which benefited from the Finnish work ethic. \nThe trio has strong connections to FinnTown\, with family living\, working\, going to school there.  They are passionate and involved champions of the Finnish-American community in Minnesota.  \nPlease join us for a most interesting evening.  Coffee and conversation will follow. \n URL: LOCATION:1694 Como Ave\, St. Paul\, MN\, United States ORGANIZER;CN="FACA%20-%20Finnish%20American%20Cultural%20Activities" END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
