The purpose of our groups is to improve our understanding of
other cultures, customs and languages
while creating lasting friendships and
having the opportunity to travel at a very modest cost. We accomplish this by exchanging visits with the various groups. When our group visits abroad,
we stay in the other group's homes and live and eat as they do. They plan trips and sightseeing tours for us and accompany us as interpreters and
guides. In turn, we then host the other groups in our homes and do the same for them.
Would you like to make new friends, both in Europe and in the US and learn a lot about various European cultures? Our friendship link is a group of
adults that meet monthly in Coventry, RI. We are affiliated with similar groups in:
Requirements for membership:
Payment of dues - $10.00 pp p/year
Attendance at 50% of meetings
We also ask that our members do one or
more of the following:
Provide housing for guests
Serve on at least one committee
Support Link functions
Meetings are held every 2nd Tuesday
of each month at 7:30 p.m. at the Senior Center, 50 Wood Street, Coventry, RI. All are welcome.
Members who actively participate in Link activities and previous programs will have
the first opportunity to travel as guests to our sister cities.
Although the home base of the Coventry Friendship
Link is in the Town of Coventry, Rhode Island, USA, it is not necessary that a member be a resident of Coventry. We are always interested in new members from the
local area (Scituate, West Warwick, Warwick, West Greenwich, and beyond). We would also like to create new links both in the U.S. and other countries. If you are interested in joining our group or starting up a link exchange group, please email us
