Now that we are all being advised to "stay at home" here is a good opportunity to travel from the comfort of your favorite chair with online videos and photos from around the USA and the world! A link to the new Travel page is available in the footer of each FFK webpage OR click here: Travel from Home
Friendship Force is a non-profit international organization that promotes cultural understanding through personal contact. The Friendship Force of Knoxville utilizes travel as a means to meet people from different cultures and places rather than emphasizing the place itself. By being a guest in other people's homes and by inviting them to be a guest in our homes, we believe we can break barriers that divide us.
Change the way you see the world!

Note from the President
We’re about to host 11 ambassadors from the San Antonio Friendship Force Club! This will be our first inbound Friendship Force journey in two years. The group arrives this Friday, Oct. 22, and that evening we’re having a Welcome Dinner at the Cherokee Bluff Clubhouse. I hope to see many of you there.
The host week, Friday through Tuesday, will be filled with activities, and many opportunities for hosts and ambassadors to learn about each other and make great memories.
If you are wondering what hosting is really like, come to the November general membership event when the FFK San Antonio hosts will talk about their experiences.
There will be another opportunity to host in April 2022 when the Greater Des Moines, Iowa, Friendship Force Club visits Knoxville.
We hope to be traveling again in the summer and fall 2022. Stay tuned for information in future newsletters and emails.
I hope to see you soon in person!
Jayne Raparelli, President
