Travel Club

If you would like to share one of your trips with Travel Club members, contact
rhosereo@optonline.net

We trust you are doing well hunkered down and safe from the pandemic.  The main purpose of the Friends is to serve the needs of the library and its community of people.  The Travel and Photo Clubs have gained popularity over the years and now we are pleased to give you a moment’s taste of what the Travel Club is all about.

Once a month, on the first Thursday, September through June, members share their travel experiences with all who attend.  There have been as many as 70 participants at our meetings and presentations range from showing picture albums to power point presentations.  A few have actually put together presentations that include video and music.  The point is all forms of presentation are welcome as are the tips and experiences about the place visited.  All are welcome and there is help available from the Library staff for those who would like to make images from their phone or camera’s memory card a power point presentation.  To reserve a month just contact Ron Ondrovic at reoimages@optonline.net, and we will find a month that will work for you.

As a special treat and taste of what you might see, and to give all of us who are shut down in our homes and looking for a distraction to the new routines we are forced to endure, the Friends have posted two popular presentations from past meetings.  One is a trip to the Galapagos Islands and the other a rafting trip down the San Juan River in Utah.  You can see them on YouTube at  https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-ma02jiYOGjbINwMOlaXSQ.  We hope you enjoy seeing these and have a taste of what we are about.  

Anyone wanting to post their presentation on our ‘network’, contact Ron Ondrovic at reoimages@optonline.net. We will provide the requirements to do this.  Once again, thank you for supporting the Firends and for looking at our network.

We love to experience new places and cultures.  The Friends’ travel club shares travel experiences of its members to all over the world.  Tips on the best sources to arrange trips, where to get the best prices and places to visit when going to the destinations are just some of the interesting bits of information you will benefit from.  Many presenters bring souvenirs, maps and a “taste” of the place where they vacationed.  So if you love traveling or merely want to vicariously experience what it is like to travel to new and exotic places come join us for an exciting evening with friends.

The  Friends Travel Club presentations  are usually scheduled for the first Thursday of the month from 7:00-8:30PM.

UPCOMING MEETINGS:

Travel Club Will Meet Via Zoom in March

The next Travel Club Meeting is scheduled as a Zoom Meeting for Thursday, March 4, 2021 at 7:00 PM. Contact Claire at rhosereo@optonline.net for information regarding this Zoom meeting. She will forward the Zoom link if you would like to attend.

Join your Virtual Travel buddies on March 4th for a long weekend in Tahoe.  Relax with Ron and Claire Ondrovic and see the mountains and lake with an early (and unexpected) snowfall.  Believe me when I say the vistas were incredible.  Then there was a bonus when we were bumped in Salt Lake City and were able to walk the town and experience the Mormon Tabernacle on Delta Airlines dime!
