The Thermal Belt Friendship Council is a loosely formed group of citizens who come together to promote stronger relationships and diversity among the peoples in Polk County.
Dr. Joe Fox, president of the group, and Donna Tatnall, vice-president, spoke to the Tryon Kiwanis Club about the activities of the Friendship Council, which meets on the second Tuesday of every month at 7 p.m. at Roseland Community Center.
They said the group aims to set examples of harmony in the community by sponsoring social activities that bring diverse groups together.
The Martin Luther King Jr. program at the Tryon Fine Arts Center Jan. 14 at 7 p.m. is one of the group’s primary events.
