Meeting set Dec. 8, 6 p.m. at Pelican Public Library

The Pelican Rapids International Friendship Festival is a little over six months away. Time to start planning. 

A successful Festival has two parts – the volunteers who step up to make it happen and the people who come to enjoy it.

Do you have ideas for musical groups we should invite? What about a cultural food your mouth is watering for? A sixth grader told me yesterday that he had learned how to needle felt at last year’s Friendship Festival – do you have a craft that you’d like to share with kids? Do you like to raise money, put up posters, haul tables and chairs, or talk to people? 

The Multicultural Committee has opportunities for all of you to be involved.

Please join us Thursday, December 8 at 6:00 p.m. at the Pelican Rapids Public Library to begin planning for our 15th Festival in June of 2023. 

This planning meeting will also be on zoom. If you’d like an invite or reminder, please contact Joan Ellison at
