“Postcards from Italy” – Saturday, January 24, 2015 – Steve McCurdy

Postcards from Italy is an insiders look at southern Italy, from the Island of Sicily to the mountain top towns of Irsina and Matera, from the island of Procida to the larger cities of Naples and Rome.  Many unique stories are told by an artist in Palermo, the mayor of Irsina and the owner of a doll hospital in Naples.  The fascinating combination of stories and images will introduce us to the culture and people of Italy in a new way.

“America’s Parklands” – Saturday, February 21, 2015 – Gray Warriner

Gray Warriner begins our journey in Alaska with the soaring heights of Denali.  Hike the wild beaches and moss-festooned rain forests of Olympic National Park, discover the secret life of sea otters along California’s coast and explore the beauty of Lake Powell.  Experience the dramatic season of Bryce Canyon, the grandeur of the Grand Canyon, the massive arches at Natural Bridges and the ancient forest in Petrified Forest.  Discover the sandstone ledges of Mesa Verde, the stone cities at Chaco and the prehistoric mounds of Ocmulgee in Georgia.  Marvel at these American treasures.

“Etched in Stone: Scotland to Provence” – Saturday, March 21, 2015 – Monty Brown

From the Central Highlands of Scotland, through the heart of England, France, London, and Paris, to the shores of the Mediterranean, stories and legends of the past are written in stone.  See churches, castles, monuments, monoliths and other stone remnants.  Visit Lock Lomond, Trossachs National Park, Inchmachome Priory on the Lake of Menteith, Duone Castle (where “Monty Python and the Holy Grail” was filmed) and Falkirk where a modern engineering marvel connects canals between Glasgow and Edinburgh.  Mighty Hadrian’s Wall, Castlerigg Stone Circle, and the land of Wordsworth, Westminister, the Crown Jewels and Cleopatra’s Needle are points of interest in England.  Across the channel to France and the Obelisk in Place de La Concorde, Notre Dame, the Eiffel Tower, the Louvre and the Classical Temple.
