Join Folkmoot For A Trip To Greece

Tasting.  Seeing.  Feeling.  Hearing.  Giving.  The first four experiences await you as you travel to Greece in December 2017 as part of this limited-offer trip sponsored by Folkmoot and coordinated by Wilcox World Travel & Tours.  The fourth experience – giving – is how your trip purchase supports the efforts of Folkmoot.

Folkmoot is working with Wilcox Travel to offer an affordable, informative and fun eight-day trip to Greece, departing December 26, 2017, and returning January 3, 2018.  This trip is for those interested in history, antiquity, art, archeology, religion, culture, and the joy of traveling to different parts of the world.  No place on this earth brings world history to life more than Greece.  

Not only can you be a part of this amazing week, but you can know that your trip is bringing important programming to the Folkmoot community.

Based on the number of trips sold, Folkmoot can earn free trips, which in turn will become raffle/fundraising opportunities that will help Folkmoot with reaching its goal to grow its year-round programming.  Therefore, your trip aids Folkmoot’s efforts to increase its role in leading cultural conversations, expand its youth and family programming and continue its efforts to restore the historic Folkmoot Friendship Center so that it can boost the number of concerts, dinners, classes and programs it offers western North Carolina communities.   

Your decision to travel to Greece will not only make great memories for you, but it will help Folkmoot build programs that will have a lasting effect on our community.  Your trip gives us opportunities for all the good that comes with “more.”
