New Melle Friendship Society Meetings Return on July 1


The New Melle Friendship Society will resume its meetings after its hiatus due to COVID-19. The New Melle Friendship Society is a group of residents that supports the relationship between Melle Germany and New Melle. The society needs more members. The Friendship Society started over 30 years ago, and the members are, for the most part, original members. The aging members of the group are asking the community to help continue the hard work and dedication they gave to this Sister City Friendship. Please don't let this important part of New Melle's history disappear.

The Friendship Society meets on the first Monday of odd months. The next meeting is July 1 at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 150 W Hwy D, at 7 p.m.

Please consider coming to the meeting and learning how you can help keep our Sister City Friendship alive. See you on July 1.
