Friendship Force of New Mexico updates

Thank you to the 37 attendants who graced us with their presence at our first luncheon meeting of the year on 1/12/19. We had 10 guests and they along with our members enjoyed an interesting, informative and fun presentation on Curanderismo – Traditional Healing in the Southwest by Dr. Cheo Torres.

We introduced our new board members and recognized past president, board member, hosts, journey participants, etc. whose efforts help to not only sustain our NM FF club but keep it thriving!

The Goals for 2019 are to grow our communication channels, form a phone tree, build new membership, create a new membership directory, increase participation and continue to have fun and make new friends.
