 Welcome to the Friends of Switzerland!

FOSI, as it is familiarly known, was established in 1964 to foster friendship, interest and understanding between New England and Switzerland. Our members include Americans who formerly studied, lived or travelled in Switzerland, Swiss nationals living in the U.S., and people who are simply curious about this unique, multicultural democracy.


We host a monthly Stammtisch Luncheon & Speaker Series during non-summer months, featuring a topic related to Switzerland or its citizens abroad.  Annually, we hold our Stratton Prize Dinner to award the Julius Adams Stratton Prize for Intercultural Achievement between our two countries.


We hope you find this website informative and that it will pique your interest in joining us at one of our ‘gemütliche’ Stammtisch luncheons
