The Friendship Force of Greater Des Moines was founded in 1977, and is one of 350 clubs around the world that promotes international understanding, cultural education, and citizen diplomacy through homestays and personal friendships, which makes them a perfect fit for a traditional German-inspired Christmas Market.
The Friendship Force of Greater Des Moines is a first-year participant in the Christkindlmarket Des Moines Silent Auction and will be adorning their tree with a “Joy to the World” theme. The tree will include 6 laminated heart shaped maps, world globes, pine cones, and an assortment of world flags.
The club hosts at least one activity a month related to a journey such as a Welcome Party for the ambassadors or cultural programs and social activities. Please visit their website for additional information and activities.
