Reently we enjoyed the various activities in the Summerfest celebration. We were privileged to see beautiful performances by international groups that gave us a glimpse of other cultures and traditions.
A few of us in the community were able to help out by hosting some of these performers. This is a special experience that can be enjoyed by many through an international organization called Friendship Force International. This organization’s goal is to enhance our appreciation of and to come to know individuals from other lands by exchanging hosting opportunities between countries.
As you come to know people, instead of just places, you come to know and appreciate other lands and cultures. Visiting in a home is far different than staying in a hotel somewhere. Friendships and good will are established. In addition, it is fun to have visitors stay in our homes so we can share with them some of our beautiful state.
