Travelogue: A Dozen Days in the Dolomites

Tuesday, February 20 | 5:15 - 6:15 | Goldtown Theatre

Stephanie Hoag hiked through Italy's famed Dolomites to absorb the region's natural beauty and thrilling history.

Doors at 5:00 p.m. Donations gladly accepted.

Tuesday, March 19 | 5:15 - 6:15 | Goldtown Theatre

From Stockholm and the Sahara to an underwater museum in Cyprus, Kerrigan will share highlights, ins and outs of solo travel, and lessons from the trip of a lifetime. Doors at 5:00 p.m. Donations gladly accepted.

Travelogue: Aegean Greece and Turkey

By land, sea, and sky, they ventured from Amorous's active monastery and Delos -the birthplace of Apollo- to Turkey's ancient sites at Ephesus and Pamukkale, before continuing on to Cappadocia and finally 'Stanbul (and many places in between). Jo and Mark will share the sights and stories that challenged and delighted their senses of sight, sound, and taste. Doors at 5:00 p.m. Donations gladly accepted.
