Oktoberfest 2018

Our annual meeting and Oktoberfest was held in the lodge in Camp Pollock.  Members enjoyed an amazing potluck dinner with festive music, followed by a meeting where 2019 Board Members were voted in successfully.  Members also decided by vote which three countries were the top choices to request for our 2020 international journey destination:  New Zealand, Chile and Peru.  Thanks to all the volunteers who helped with set-up and clean-up for this event.

                 Outbound Journey to Belgium and Germany


Club members enjoyed a fabulous journey to Leuven, Belgium and Kiel, Germany.  Check out our Friendship Force of Sacramento Facebook page or our Journey Blog (see link below).  Thanks to Marty McKnew, our Journey Coordinator for doing a great job!

Each one- to three-week program includes fun experiences, such as learning to make traditional lavash bread in Armenia, visiting historic Brazilian fishing villages or tobogganing on sand hills in Australia’s Hunter Valley.'  Read the article here.
