Monday 13th March - 7.30pm - PART 4: GOLDEN AMERICA WITH FRED AND RITA 

Last year we only made it halfway through this epic road trip as our adventurous couple embarked on their 'best adventure ever' to celebrate 50 years of married life. Join us for two special evenings as we conclude the 9700 miles overland journey - from New Mexico, through Utah and Nevada to the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
Due to demand we will be selling tickets for these special fundraising evenings. Please call/email the Centre or send us a cheque and we will send you your ticket.
£5 for members (£6 non-members) per talk, or book both nights for £8 for members (£10 non-members).

Advance notice: We will be having a Geology Walk in the Dells on Sunday 2nd April and a Herbal Wildflower Walk on Sunday 23rd April, following on from Anna's talk in November.
