Friendship Force of Northern Illinois celebrated our 30th anniversary in 2014. We met on May 1 at the Magnolia Room at Lambs’ Farm in Libertyville for a delicious luncheon. Charter member Jean Wilson presided at the program, which featured a video showing highlights of the events, exchanges, and friendships that have transpired since 1984. Friendship Force International was represented by Pallie Savoie, who gave a brief talk about the accomplishments of Friendship Force around the world. All of the past presidents who were present spoke and told annecdotes about their tenure as president and their feelings about our club. Current president Marlene DiBrito also presented her thoughts about our past and future.
