Rotary Club of Lititz Fifth Travelogue of the 2017-18 Season
will feature “Ireland, Celtic Myth & Splendors”
The Rotary Club of Lititz 2017-18 Travel & Adventure Series will continue on Saturday, February 10, with “Ireland, Celtic Myth & Splendors” at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange Street, Lititz. There are two performances: Matinee at 2:00 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 the splendors it possesses. And in the process 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 – and heart.
Mortimer’s career has ranged from politics to television production to travel films. Born and raised in Michigan, she was a flight attendant for American Airlines. As public speaker and travel consultant for American Airlines, she traveled throughout the United States and 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 was also elected as County Commissioner. She went on to media production (television and radio), and in 1986 she began to broaden her interest to include travel documentaries. She has performed in hundreds of cities both in the United States and Canada, including the Carnegie and National Geographic in Washington, D.C. Her films have been shown on television and are also available on DVDs in schools and libraries.
General Admission tickets are sold at the door only for $7.00 for adults and $3.00 for students. Season Tickets may be used daytime or evening and are $35.00 for adults and $12.00 for students.

All of the net funds from these activities are given to over 30 non-profit service groups each year, as well as providing college loans and scholarships to many local students. Some of the locally supported groups include four local Fire Companies, Warwick Ambulance Association, Warwick/Lititz Community Chest, Lititz Historical Foundation, Lititz Public Library, Lititz recCenter and Lititz Springs Park. Since the Travelogue started 55 years ago, the Rotary Club of Lititz has donated well over ONE and a QUARTER MILLION DOLLARS community wide and helped over 500 students attend college. The money raised this past year, which grossed over $125,000, is now being distributed to these many community and charitable focused groups and students.
Your attendance at our Travelogue Series certainly helps us continue these important community service efforts. Thank you for your SUPPORT to our wonderful community of Lititz and visit our web site at www.lititzrotary.com!
