Ambassador Application Form


San Paulo, Brazil Incoming Exchange, May 20-27

T he Friendship Force of Lincoln will be welcoming 18 ambassadors from Sao Paulo, Brazil May 20 – 27. There will be five couples and eight singles. This will give club members an opportunity to meet the Brazilians, demonstrate our famous hospitality, and show off our city and state.

Lincoln visited Brazil in 2008. We spent a day in Sao Paulo, a huge city with high rise buildings as far as the eye can see. The Brazilians should enjoy our green yards and open fields.

Volunteers are needed to host the small group dinners. These do not need to be fancy – a picnic or potluck would do. You can enlist neighbors, friends, or Friendship Force members to co-host with you.

The following activities have been planned for the Brazilians. Club members are welcome to participate in any or all activities.
