Changing the way we see the world
THIS happy group of 21 visitors (ambassadors) from Murray Bridge, South Australia were on the Sunshine Coast for a week in June, being home hosted by the Friendship Force of the Sunshine Coast.
They enjoyed seeing the attractions of the coast area as well as the hinterland and joining in organised activities with club members.
One highlight was a day at the Corbould Park races, trying their best to pick winners.
Friendship Force is an adult home hosting cultural exchange group, with more than 360 clubs in 67-plus countries.
The group hosts and befriends national and international visitors as well as travelling to other clubs of the world and being, in turn, hosted to learn about other countries and cultures, therefore promoting friendship.
The Sunshine Coast area encompasses the Glasshouse area through to Nambour, the hinterland; Maleny to Mapleton and over to the coast from Caloundra to Noosa.
If anyone would like to learn more or attend one of the group's meetings or social activities, contact the membership officer, Jim, on 5443 8959 or president, Mike, on 5478 1685.
