Friendship Force serves up ice cream social

By Bob Anderso and Mary Ellen Johnson

Our club’s ice cream social was held last month at the Big Canoe Swim Club. It was a feast for the senses—if you could smell the fresh pineapple and strawberries, the nuts, the whipped cream, and of course, the different toppings!

Big Canoe residents Barry and Linda Kadechuk organized the meeting with help from other club members. Guests were also treated to a presentation, with photos showing what our club and Friendship Force International is all about—not just travel, but opportunities to host and create unique friendships around the globe.

We extend a warm welcome to visitors of all ages! If you would like to join us for a Potluck at Big Canoe Lodge, Sunday, Nov.11, at 1:30 p.m. or find out more about our club, please contact Bob Anderson, membership chair, 706 579-1708, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Friendship Force International has clubs and exchanges worldwide that members can participate in. Check their website at https://www.friendshipforce.org/ or our club at www.ffbcng.org

Nine club members will return from visiting the Republic of Georgia and Armenia during Oct. 14-31. This will be a fabulous trip with some home hosting in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. In 2017 we hosted a group of young professional delegates in the Open World Program from Georgia, and they invited us to come to their Georgia to visit with them and their families!

The 2019 journeys are inbound from Kiev, Ukraine in May, and outbound to Ottawa, Canada (including tour of the Maritime provinces) in September. Learn more about the Ottawa journey at the potluck meeting in November.

If you are interested in home hosting people from other countries or the United States, or being home hosted, or meeting new people from around the world, check out Friendship Force!
