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
Happy New Year!
I am optimistic that 2023 will be a great year for Friendship Force Knoxville.
We have interesting programs already scheduled for the first quarter of the year. Inbound and outbound journeys are planned for the spring, summer and fall. These journeys begin in April when we welcome the Western Colorado Friendship Force club to our wonderful city. Two months later, it will be our chance to visit Western Colorado.
Our next in-person gathering on January 24 will be an excellent opportunity to invite people you know who may be interested to learn about Friendship Force. FFK members who journeyed to Australia in October-November 2022 will share their stories and descriptions of the places they visited and the interesting people they met on their phenomenal trip.
See articles in this newsletter and the FFK website listed at the top of this page -- friendshipforceknoxville.org -- for more information about 2023 programs and journeys. For those of you with Facebook accounts, visit our Friendship Force page for photos and additional information.
I hope to see you on January 24.
Jayne Raparelli, President
