The Thermal Belt Friendship Council is a loosely organized group of local residents that meets together to narrow the racial divide. There is not a membership fee to join the organization. The organization was established during the late 1980s, in response to a planned Klan march in Tryon. Individuals gathered together to examine strategies to demonstrate their lack of support for the Klan. Out of the meeting grew the first community picnic.

Anyone interested in joining the many activities sponsored by the Thermal Belt Friendship Council should contact its president, Dr. Joseph Fox, at
