Travelogue will explore Cuba
The next Rotary Club of Lititz Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, April 5 at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St. There are performances at 2 and 7:30 p.m. with musical entertainment 30 minutes prior to each.
The fifth travelogue of the season will feature “Cuba: A Road Trip from Havana to Santiago de Cuba,” with Marlin Darrah as the professional cinematographer. While Cuba is the largest and most colorful island in the Caribbean, it’s also the least understood by Americans. To discover the many sights and charms of this country, our trip will explore the 300 mile length of the island.
The trip begins in Havana, the Capitol and economic center. The most important and oldest section of the city is Plaza de Arms. It is ringed by some of the finest Spanish Colonial architecture including the Palaces of the Governors. The La Real Fuerza Castle is another “must see” site. It is the oldest of four forts erected by the Spanish to guard the harbor form privateers and pirates.
Leaving Havana, we’ll travel through the Cuban countryside in ancient 1950s classic American cars. Large parts of the island are covered with sugar cane fields as well as tobacco growing areas, For over 400 years, tobacco growers have produced the world’s finest wrappers, fillers, and binders. Tour Trinidad established in the 1500s and known as the crown jewel of Cuba’s colonial past. The journey ends in Santiago. This port city is the second largest and most Africanized on the island. It is home to the famous El Morro Castle.
General Admission tickets are sold at the door. Adult tickets are $6 and students are $3. Net funds from the Travelogue Series, along with the Rotary Craft Show and Golf Outing, are given to over 30 non-profit service groups each year, as well as providing college loans and scholarships to many local students. Attendance at the Travelogue Series helps the Rotary Club of Lititz continue these important community service efforts. To learn more, visit lititzrotary.com.
