Looking Ahead to 2022 and 2023

As we receive our vaccines, travel is opening up again! We can plan ahead and look forward to some fabulous trips with FGCCT. Our groups are small by design for enjoyment and safety. We welcome you back to our upcoming tours! The following tours are in the works and not yet priced. There is no obligation to join a tour by putting yourself on the interest list, but you will receive the brochure first and be given an opportunity to sign up a few days before the general mailing goes out to all club members.

Please register your interest or join our Tours Committee by emailing tours@ctgardenclubs.org
