March luncheon: A celebration with African instruments

Friendship Force International was founded by Wayne Smith and introduced by President Jimmy Carter on March 1, 1977!
FFI will be celebrating its 43rd year in March!
Ms. Camilla Dodson, a Chautauqua speaker, will be helping us celebrate with her African instruments.  Ms. Dodson is the daughter of a Lesotho (South Africa) chief.  For many years she lived in South Africa and Ireland.  She was one of 5 people invited to speak when Nelson Mandela returned to Cape Town after 27 years in prison!
Drums are probably the earliest musical instrument, common to all cultures.  Ms. Dodson’s presentation describes the role of music in traditional African society using drumming.
This program has been made possible by the New Mexico Humanities Council and the National Endowment for the Humanities for funding of the program.
Please help us celebrate 43 years of journeys and  enjoy the entertainment, history, people and culture up close and personal!!  Bring a guest!
