Have you ever wanted to explore one place? Learn by visiting historic, locations of interest in a specific state/city? DKG's Educational Foundation offers presents a seminar for just this purpose - exploration/exciting/informative - Purposeful Living. Traditionally the seminar takes place in or around the location for the International Convention. This year member's will benefit from the seminar location at our nation's capital. I have been to the capital on a similar tour and can say without hesitation that the activties planned for the 2012 seminar will be rewarding.
