There is a lot happening these days with Friends of Korea - a revisit with over 45 participants was one of the highlights of the year. For several of those former volunteers who were on this trip, this was their first time back to Korea in 35 or 40 years. You can imagine the surprises that awaited them.
In addition to this revisit, we had a wonderful annual meeting in San Jose - parts of it were live streamed on Facebook. We continue to work closely with the Korean Consul Generals across the United States as they seek to introduce and celebrate Korean culture. There were events in Detroit, Seattle and Atlanta to which FoK members were invited.
Our newsletter, Yobosayo, continues to focus on interesting Korea-related topics. And we are looking at creating a series of podcasts on a wide variety of topics that are Korea-focused.
What better gift than a membership in Friends of Korea for your friend, family member or colleague who is interested in all things Korean?
