With borders closed, Friendship Force goes to Karoonda instead

Instead of travelling overseas, club members from Murray Bridge and Adelaide have enjoyed an outing in the Mallee.

This post was contributed by Ray Symes of Murray Bridge Friendship Force.

With international borders closed, Friendship Force – a non-profit organisation whose members usually travel around the world to stay in one another’s houses – has turned to new activities for its members.

On May 15, Murray Bridge Friendship Force had 21 people – some from the Adelaide Friendship Force club, combined with some from the Murray Bridge club at Karoonda – enjoy a pleasant time.

They met for coffee at Karoonda’s Farmhouse and Co, a cafe, arts and craft store; followed by leisure time at the historic Pioneer Park.

On leaving the park, the group had a look around the shops and town, then had a delicious evening meal at the Karoonda Hotel.

Everyone ended up seated on their deck chairs on the mild night, watching the magnificent silo art night projection presentation.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the extremely unique experience.

Thank you to all of those that participated.
