I have been fortune to meet several people who belong to the Circle and not only have they come to my home but to go to there home. We have had a wonderful year in 2003 and I hope that 2004 bring a wonderful, peaceful and joyous year for all."

Ruth is our Swap Co-ordinator for the Worldwide Circle of Friends. Part of the fun of a swap is getting to know the other person a little better. Many have made great friendships this way.

The Circle's motto, which depicts my goals for the Worldwide Circle of Friends is:

A ball is a circle. No beginning, no end.
It keeps us together, like our Circle of Friends;
but, the treasure inside, for you to see
is the treasure of friendship you've granted to me.

Today I pass the friendship ball to you. Pass it on to someone who is a friend to you.
