Journey Engagement Group in Columbia
Monthly “get togethers” vary according to activity scheduled. Examples of activites include breakfast meetings, visiting KOMU TV station, gathering at Shelter Garden and visiting with a Columbia Police Officer over a cup of coffee. We meet the last Monday of each month and encourage family members to attend and join the fun. Call the Columbia office at 573.443.8665 for the time and location of our next meeting.
