Friendship Center interpreters sought

The International Friendship Center of Logan County is in the process of updating its list of interpreters.

The center was founded 25 years ago to assist people relocating to the area who were challenged by our language. It typically served the Japanese speaking population who were here to assist and train for the Honda plant and their affiliates.

The focus of the organization has changed. There are not as many Japanese families living in the area, but the organization still is called upon to provide interpreters of all languages.

The organization’s current list of interpreters is out of date.

Residents who have a command of a second language are asked to contact Pat Roby, (937) 210-0469 or email to be placed on a list.
