Rotary Club of Lititz Third Travelogue of the 2017-18

Season will feature Germany and Switzerland

 

The Rotary Club of Lititz 2017-18 Travel & Adventure Series will continue on Saturday, November 11, 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.

 

Travel to Germany and Switzerland with Marlin Darrah. In Munich, where locals specialize in good living, you will visit boisterous markets and go-for-Baroque palaces, while office workers surf in the Isar River. Heading into the foothills of the Alps, you will tour the fairy-tale castles of "Mad" King Ludwig, and cross into Tirol to conquer a desolate ruined castle. Then you will climb atop the Zugspitze, the highest point in Germany.

 

Cruising the Rhine River, you will dodge riverboat traffic and the legendary Loreley. After climbing castles and descending into dungeons, you will relax with Rhine wine. Then you will tour Burg Eltz — a lived-in castle where the noble lady still puts out fresh flowers. From there you will travel to the walled town of Rothenburg to see Germany's best wood carving, a vivid dose of medieval punishment, and a tour with the night watchman of the town's lamp-lit ramparts.

 

Darrah is the award-winning executive director and cinematographer of the renowned Portland, Oregon-based production company, International Film & Video. Darrah’s 34 years of production experience have taken him to more than 140 countries worldwide, yielding more than 70 documentary and travel-adventure programs that have aired on PBS, History Channel, Discovery Channel and more. Recently, a two-hour documentary he shot and directed in Egypt was screened at the Cairo Opera House to an audience of 3,000 guests. Darrah has produced promotional programs for dozens of international travel-adventure clients (e.g. Society Expeditions, TraveLearn, Exploration Cruise Lines, etc.). Several respected stock footage companies (including National Geographic) represent thousands of Darrah’s best international HD shots.

Rotary Club of Lititz Second Travelogue of the 2017-18 Season will feature “Ghosts of the Gold Rush”

 

The Rotary Club of Lititz 2017-18 Travel & Adventure Series will continue on Saturday, October 7, 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.

 

Deadwood. Tombstone. Robbers Roost. Even today, these words speak to us of a wild, somewhat unsavory past. With more than their share of outlaws and “lawless” lawmen, the boom towns and mining camps of the west became famous around the world. Follow the footsteps of Butch Cassidy, The Sundance Kid and the Wild Bunch throughout the mountain west in Gray Warriner’s “Ghosts of the Gold Rush.”

From the millions mined in Colorado, to California's historic Highway 49 in the heart of the 49ers “motherlode country,” the ghosts of the gold rush are still with us. Pony Express stations, old stage stops and trading posts... to railroads to nowhere, the West reveals its long-hidden past in the deserts of Nevada, Utah, Arizona, and old New Mexico.

 

Journey to see the still-visible, rich history of the West that remains ... and some of the most spectacular places in North America.

 

Gray Warriner is an independent producer of documentaries and travelogues. He has worked as a cameraman, director and producer, and has won over 100 national and international awards for film excellence (including Eastman Kodak's award for best film). He brings with him 35 years’ experience as a professional filmmaker. He has also been an instructor of cinematography at the University of Washington. For the past 30 years, he has headed up Camera One, a Seattle-based production company that specializes in educational and adventure/travel films.

 

An honors graduate from the University of Washington, Gray majored in Geology and Physical Geography (Phi Beta Kappa, top 1% of Graduating Class). Gray entered the film business as a result of a chance encounter with a French documentary film crew while on a trip to the Mayan ruins of Tikal in Guatemala. The work fascinated Gray and he decided to abandon his graduate studies in pursuit of filmmaking.

Rotary Club of Lititz First Travelogue of the 2017-18 Season

will feature “Promised Land: Adventures In the Middle East”

 

The first presentation of the Rotary Club of Lititz 2017-18 Travel & Adventure Series will be held Saturday, September 23, 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 Middle East is a land of hospitality, a place where people make strangers feel at home. At the same time, it’s also been witness to acts of unspeakable brutality between warring tribes throughout history. It’s a world of paradoxes – one that is explored in director Rick Ray’s new film “The Promised Land: Adventures In the Middle East.”

 

“The Promised Land” represents a travel documentary through several Middle Eastern countries, including Israel, Jordan and Turkey, and it showcases the wonders of those lands while discussing their rich histories and cultures. It will include wonders such as Petra, Jerusalem, the Cedars of Lebanon, and Cappadocia.

 

Ray, an award-winning cinematographer, writer, editor and director, has traveled the world to capture images of its peoples and cultures. A former Lonely Planet Backpacker, he has produced numerous films on regions as diverse as Israel, Bali, Borneo, Lebanon, Syria and Iceland.

Ray is founder and president of the web-based stock footage company DVarchive.com and is a frequent lecturer at performing arts centers and universities across the United States.
