Ms. Wright has prepared a PowerPoint overview to outline and explain her concept and community approach to the project. She will discuss historic and traditional saunas, modern and contemporary sauna design and the use of recycled materials to construct saunas.

An example of recycled materials in sauna construction, "the door sauna," crafted by the Finlandia Lions Hockey team, is currently on display in front of the Finnish American Heritage Center in downtown Hancock.
