The Gardner, Massachusetts, Finnish Socialist Chapter was founded in 1905 as an independent workers' club. Shortly thereafter it joined the Finnish American Workers' League Imatra, a shortlived nation-wide movement patterned after the Imatra Society of New York. The League promoted mutual aid and cultural activities. The Gardner group left the Imatra League in 1906, joined the Socialist Party, and became a Finnish Socialist chapter of the Finnish Socialist Federation. The suborganizations of the Gardner Chapter included a drama society, entertainment committee, sewing circle, band, choir, lending library, young people's league, and a gymnastics group.
