The Kiwanis Travel Adventure Series resumes on Saturday night with a film entitled "The Real World of Fiji." The film will be narrated by the filmmaker, Rick Howard, who has produced several popular travel films exploring Southeast Asia and the islands of the South Pacific.
The film will be presented at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Flintridge Preparatory School, which is located at the corner of Foothill Blvd. and Crown Ave. in La Cañada Flintridge. Pre-program entertainment featuring Tom Burrows piano melodies will begin at 7:10 p.m. Tickets may be purchased at the door and are $8.
Fiji is a zesty blend of cultures in a heavenly setting. Fiji has over 300 islands, each fringed with coral reefs and lapped by warm azure waters — the diving and snorkeling are superb. Amid its wealth of natural beauty, Fiji's true magic lies in its people and the fascinating blend of their diverse cultures. The film will include a visit to the virtually unchanged primitive island life of Waya as well as the large islands of Viti Levu and Vanua Leve.
The proceeds from this Series will help fund the youth programs of the La Cañada Kiwanis Foundation. This non-profit foundation sponsors the Key Clubs at both La Cañada High School and Flintridge Prep. More than 200 young people are involved in these programs and they join the Kiwanis Family in the community in annually providing hundreds of hours of service to the community. The Foundation also contributes to many local service projects and youth organizations, both local and international.
