A Message from the FFLA Leadership Team

Dear Friends,

This is not the message I had planned to share with you as we approach the 2nd quarter of 2020.

At the beginning of the year we were excited for the many opportunities to travel with Friendship Force in 2020. 

This pandemic is like nothing I have experienced in my lifetime and I expect the same is true for each of you.

At this time the most important thing each of us can do is stay well, stay at home, practice social distancing and follow the advice of the scientists, medical professionals and state and local officials.

I will do my best to keep this FFLA website updated with information about FFLA, information from FFI and Regional information coming from our Field Reps.

While we cannot gather together during this crisis, we are fortunate that we have the technology to stay connected.  Be sure to reach out to your friends in FFLA and in the wider world of Friendship Force.  Social connections, even when they may not be in the form we would prefer help to ease the pain of isolation and help to boost the immune system.  

Stay well and reach out to the FFLA Leadership Team if there is anything we can help you with, or if you have questions we might be able to answer.

In friendship,

Pat Gomez, Leadership Team Chair
