Thermal Belt Friendship Council luncheon set for Aug. 14

Thermal Belt Friendship Council will hold its monthly luncheon this Saturday, Aug. 17, at 11:45 a.m. at The Junction Restaurant at the intersection of Highways 11 and 14.

All are invited.

The Friendship Council is very active in bringing peoples of various races and ethnic backgrounds together in the various events it sponsors, such as the annual Friendship Picnic at Harmon Field in June, Christmas caroling and potluck and the annual Martin Luther King Jr. Commemoration held at Tryon Fine Arts Center every year in January, as well as other events throughout the year.

The Friendship Council has no membership requirements, no dues and there is never a charge for its events. Council “members” meet the second Tuesday of each month at 6 p.m. at the Roseland Community Center, located on Peake Street in Tryon (except June, July and August) to plan activities.

All members of the community are invited to come and participate in the meetings.
