Outbound Journey for 2019:

Sixteen travelers are scheduled to head west in August to visit Oregon and Washington on a trip organized through FFGA. Greater Atlanta club members will meet their hosts Aug. 13 in the Mid-Willamette area of Oregon, which contains Oregon’s wine country. After visiting that area, the group moves on to visit the Lower Columbia Club in southwest Washington state, an area perhaps best known as home to Mount St. Helens.
