The Kiwanis Club of La Cañada presents its second Travel Adventure film of the season on Saturday, Jan. 23, with “Cruising the Eastern Mediterranean,” presented by Mary Lee and Sid Nolan.
The film begins in Venice with views of the Piazza San Marcos from the ship’s deck. Ports-of-call are along the Dalmatian Coast, Greece and its islands, Turkey, Cyprus, Israel and Egypt.
Dubrovnik, Olympia, Athens, Mykanos, Santorini, Rhodes, Cyprus, Haifa, and Jerusalem are visited, each offering an array of ancient archeological sites, charming harbors, flavorful foods and wines, and hospitable people.
Before heading back to Venice, the boat docks at Port Said, entrance to the Suez Canal. Visits are made to the pyramids of Giza, bustling Cairo, and ancient Alexandria.
Mary Lee and Sid Nolan have been working in the field of educational media production for over 35 years.
The film will be presented at 7:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Flintridge Preparatory School, located at the corner of Foothill Boulevard and Crown Avenue in La Cañada. Preprogram entertainment, beginning at 7:10 p.m., will feature Tom Burrows on piano and vocalist Wendy Alane Smith. Tickets may be purchased at the door for $8.
