Keeping the Finland Community Connected

While the Clair Nelson Center remains closed to the general public due to the COVID-19 virus, we are still working on ways to serve community needs safely. One way is through internet and technology services, especially related to telehealth. 

Thanks to CARES Act Funding distributed by Lake County, the Community Center was recently able to expand internet access options. Wireless internet will soon be available throughout the entire parking lot, so people can park and connect if they need to attend a virtual medical appointment or connect to a job interview. If you would like to use a scanner, printer, or video conference-enabled room, you must make an appointment by calling 218-353-0300. There are also iPads available for checkout.

The Clair Nelson Center has been serving the community’s tech needs for years with WiFi internet, printing, scanning and public computers. Those services have become even more important because of the current COVID crisis. Thanks to Lake County and the CARES Act funding, community members will now have the ability to use new equipment and better WiFi.

The community center is located at 6866 Cramer Rd, Finland, MN 55603. Community members can contact the center at 218-353-0300 to set up an appointment to utilize indoor internet services or they can connect anytime to the outside network. The network info and password are posted in the entryway of the building, which is accessible 24 hours a day.
