President’s Summer Day was loaded with pirates and internationality

ARR! Pirates landed on the coast of Uittamo.

This year’s President’s Summer Day theme was ”Pirates of the Pool”. Since Ducks are daring and adventurous species most of the guest took the challenge and plunged into the realm of Pirates and almost 60 pirates were gathered together on the shores of Uittamo.

Pirates from JCI Aurajoki, Espoon Nuorkauppakamari – JCI ESPOO , JCI Cosmopolis and faraway countries (from our Multitwinning chapters) Wirtschaftsjunioren / JCI Frankfurt, JCI Esja in Reykjavik, JCI Leipzig and JCI Lyon enjoyed harmonious and relaxed sunny Sunday at the Uittamon Paviljonki on 12th of June. To honor our Multitvinning chapter’s attendants official language of The President’s Summer Day was, for the first time, english.

President’s Summer Day was traditionally  hosted by Aurajoki JCI trial members. Trial members arranged entertainment to suit all pirates, regardless of age: treasure hunt, bouncy castle, swords fighting, mölkky, darts, photobooth, good food, drinks, music and on top of all that hugging with Captain Seppo Ankka.

And as a Pirate would say

  • We had a ruckas, thank ye! – We had fun, thank you!
  • Spy wit’ ye eye ye – See you next year!
