On Thursday May 26th Friendship House celebrated 30 years of dedicated service to the community providing homeless services and daily meals. Friendship House offers a hand up and not just a hand out. The Ceremony began with a plaque presentation to Board President Don Zimmerman to rededicate the Friendship House mission. Mayor Jill Boudreau gave a proclamation declaring May 26th 2016 Friendship House day. There were tours given of the shelters and newly acquired home that will be designated as permanent housing. Then there was a march with signs over to the Lincoln theatre where there was a party and video showings. There was also a guest speaker, Derrick McNeil from Seattle that showed a trailer of and spoke about a documentary that he is making about the homeless in Seattle. The event was well attended.
