Post 101- Card From Lempaala

Just a small update for today. Postcards have been slow in coming this past week. Not many have arrived. I am hoping this will improve next week. I have just a single card to show now. It is From Lempaala, Finland. It was sent by Elina, a fellow Postcrosser. Lempaala is a municipality in southwestern Finland with approximately 20,000 inhabitants.

The front of the card shows The St Birgit Memorial Church of Lempaala. The Church of Lempaala was built in 1504 and is dedicated in the memory of St Birgit. Birgit, daughter of Birger, died in Rome in 1373 and was proclaimed a saint on 7 October 1391. In 1999 she was appointed patron saint of Europe.

Elina used a 2008 stamp highlighting 100 years of technical university. Thw stamp was issued in a souvenir sheet format. Thanks Elina.

That's about all for today, other than to say that comments are always welcome . Feel free to leave a comment if you are inclined to do so. I look forward to them.
