This opportunity is limited to 12 participants from Chattooga County. Minimum age is 18; no one is too old for the program. The sessions will all begin at the Civic Center. From there, they may then visit other points of interest around the county and region. The Chamber will provide transportation. Participants must be able to board and travel in the county van or make arrangements to be transported in a personal vehicle.
A one-day visit to Atlanta will be planned to the State Capitol and elsewhere in Atlanta.
