DILWORTH-The Red River Finns, a local cultural heritage group that often operates with Nordic culture clubs, will host a St. Urho's Potluck at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 18, at the Dilworth Depot, 3 4th St. NE.

St. Urho is a fictitious saint whose creation is largely credited to Finnish Minnesotans as a way to celebrate their heritage.

The Red River Finns will share stories of St. Urho over Finnish foods and plan a short meeting to discuss the Finnish Centennial, which will be celebrated with food, live music and two traveling saunas at the Hjemkomst Center in Moorhead on Friday, April 28, and Saturday, April 29.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a Finnish dish and wear purple or green. For more information, contact Ellen Liddle at (701) 281-9303.
