Saturday’s travelogue visits China

By on February 10, 2016

The Rotary Club of Lititz’ fifth Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, Feb. 13, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St. There will be two performances: at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. The Myopics will provide musical entertainment 30 minutes prior to each travelogue.

The travelogue will feature “China Rising” with Dale Johnson as the professional cinematographer. China is a country and a society steeped in history and tradition. Beijing is the Capital, where one finds the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, and the Great Wall just north of the city. The Great Wall is about 4,000 miles long, stretching from the Yellow Sea, or the East China Sea, to the western barrens where the Wall is now almost unnoticeable, almost indistinguishable in the landscape.

 

The Great Wall of China, spanning approximately 4,000 miles, is one of several stops on “China Rising,” the next Rotary travelogue, set for Feb. 13.

In contrast to the antiquity, the east has a burgeoning economic expansion: ultramodern cities, expensive shopping, traffic congestion. Perhaps most surprising are huge farming operations with giant tractors producing corn, soybeans and other crops on private farms &tstr; not government collectives as in the past. China is still a country worth watching, and a country worth knowing.

General admission tickets are sold at the door. Adult tickets cost $6; students are $3. For more information contact Randy at 626-8895 or visit lititzrotary.com.
