Friendship Council to hold Deck the Holidays FairPublished 6:00pm Wednesday, November 21, 2012
Another program that fosters multi-racial appreciation and understanding is a free annual community picnic held at Harmon Field.
Several hundred members of the community usually participate. The Friendship Council also sponsors the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., birthday celebration. It also has a scholarship fund for qualified area high school students.
The Friendship Council welcomes new members at any time, and there is no fee to belong. The greater the membership, the better the group is prepared to serve the community with friendship, understanding and support. Members receive meaningful gratification in helping others to co-exist peacefully with their neighbors in a comfortable and pleasing atmosphere.
Meetings are held the second Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m. at Roseland Center in Tryon, which is at the corner of East Howard and Peake Street. For more information, visit www.friendshipcouncil.homestead.com, or call Lynnea at 864-457-2426.
