Kaleva Centennial Walkway

Glass Mosaic Unveiling

September 26, 2020


The first glass mosaic by Tricia Boucha will be unveiled on Kaleva’s Centennial Walkway on September 26 at 4 pm. This is the first of three reproductions of the Kalevala murals that the artist is gifting to the community.  The murals which are in the back entrance of the Bottle House Museum were painted during the Depression by young people in the NYA under the direction of artist Harry Armstrong. The six murals depicting scenes from the Finnish epic poem, the Kalevala, were dedicated in September 1940 with a celebration of the 40th anniversary of the town. The other two mosaics will be placed on the Walkway in the spring. A grant from the Manistee County Community Foundation helped make this project possible.

Annual Winter Solstice - Kaleva Luminary Tradition

Winter Solstice

December 21, 2020


We as a community celebrate the Finnish tradition of lighting candles for those who have passed by placing luminaries next to each grave in the Maple Grove Township Cemetery in the village of Kaleva on December 21st.  This event is reminiscent of the Finnish tradition of lighting candles on Christmas Eve for fallen friends or family. Following the lighting, people gather by the fire for a prayer and Christmas carols.  Bethany Lutheran Church also offers soup and bread to nourish the workers at 5:30 pm at the church.
