For 2017, we have E.D.s and their committees at work on our up-coming Hosting: Minnesota USA in May, and Marlborough NZ in September.
Our club goes to Hartford CT USA in July, by way of a cruise up the St Lawrence River to Boston which sets off July 1, as Canada celebrates its 150th birthday. For the cruise we plan to use the FFI format of a “Discovery” tour. That is, we will look to promote the Friendship Force at stops along the way in the Maritime Provinces in an effort to start a Friendship Force club in Eastern Canada. This is a new format for FFI with few protocols so we will be pioneers.
I have developed a compact recording form for exchanges so our club will have a concise record of where we went and who we hosted, and who were our of who were our hosting and journey coordinators and committees. This record will complement the club Secretary’s records but will be maintained in its own binder to enable access by our future committees.
