By on February 7, 2018

Travelogue at Warwick High School Feb. 10

The Rotary Club of Lititz Travel & Adventure Series continues Saturday, Feb. 10, with “Ireland, Celtic Myth & Splendors” at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St., Lititz.

There are two performances: matinee at 2 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 1:30 p.m., and evening at 7:30 p.m. with a musical prelude starting at 7 p.m.

The country of Ireland has many stories to tell … and some of them are even true! Nowhere on earth is there a better place about which to spin the tales of past and present than the wild, woolly island off the coast of Europe.

Join Sandy Mortimer for a wonderful venture around and inside the magic Isle to discover some of its splendors. Meet giants, geniuses, castles, coffin ships, saints, spirits, and a whole lot more. Experience amazing places and people, both then and now, that will capture your imagination.

Ireland is the next stop for the Lititz Rotary Club’s travel series

Mortimer’s career has ranged from politics to television production and travel films. Born and raised in Michigan, she was a flight attendant for American Airlines. As public speaker and travel consultant for American, she traveled throughout the world.

Later, she became a news reporter and on-air personality for a CBS television station, developing and sharpening her skills in film and video journalism, and writing for both television and studio audiences. She went on to media production, and in 1986 she began to broaden her interest to include travel documentaries. She has performed in hundreds of cities throughout the United States and Canada, and her films have been shown on television and are also available in schools and libraries.
