Journeys of Other Clubs, Discover Trips and Festivals

See where OTHER CLUBS are going in 2020. You can join them if they have room for you. Check them out!

PREVIEW of some opportunities with other clubs:

From September 29 through October 14, 2020, I will serve as journey coordinator for a  FFI trip to
Bulgaria, Romania, and Moldovo. As this is not a Dallas FF tour it will not be possible to have a registration period exclusively for our club. Probably the tour will be listed in the FFI catalog early next year. Consequently, this advance notice is being provided.  We anticipate spending time with FF of Bucharest (Romania). Any member who is interested may contact me for a copy of the itinerary.  I will be out of the country January 4-13, 2020.
