Kangasalan Sanomat invited their readers and friends to a summer gathering to commemorate the newspaper turning 90. Coffee service was promised for 500 people; over 1000 arrived! For Pekka Tolppa and his staff, however, this was a piece of cake. In the end, they managed to serve everyone coffee and everyone left feeling happy.
