Welcome to the website of the Deutsch-Amerikanischer Freundeskreis Melle / German American Friendship Society Melle.
In the 19th century thousands of people from the Melle area emigrated to America. Today their descendants are living in New Melle (Missouri) and in many other places all over the USA. Our society wants to support and to vitalize the contacts between the people of both nations.
In 1988 a partnership between Melle (Lower Saxony) and New Melle (Missouri) was established. The reciprocal visits between the towns have been unforgettable highlights.
