CROSSVILLE — Fall must be here because it is time to start the FFG Lions Club Travel and Adventure Series. The first show will take you on a trip to the Maritimes and Newfoundland in Eastern Canada on Oct. 7 at the Palace Theatre starting at 7 p.m.

Many, if not all of you, have heard of Canadian places like Montreal, Ottawa, Toronto, Hamilton, Winnipeg and Windsor. But, most, if not all of you, have never heard of Gaspe Peninsula, Tadoussac, Bonaventure Island, Charlottetown or Cape Breton Highlands National Park. After Oct. 7 you will know about these places and many more.

John Holod and Jodie Ginter will present their video that includes the Caspe Peninsula and Newfoundland/Labrador for a spectacular adventure that they feel should be on every travelers “to do” list. In addition to the places listed above that you probably have not seen, here are some more: Forillon National Park, Perc’e Rock, Acadian isles and Village, Bay of Fundy, Hopewell Rocks and Peggy’s Cove.

You will also experience whale watching, lighthouse history, largest migratory bird refuge in North America, world’s highest tides and Machias Seal Island and Puffin Tour. You will ferry to Newfoundland, Labrador and Saint John and enjoy many national parks. This is a thrill packed video that will hold your attention for the entire evening. You’re invited to relax, kick off your shoes, get a bag of popcorn and a soft drink and enjoy a new adventure for the next couple of hours.

Season tickets will be available at the door for $30 for six shows including the one for this evening. Otherwise, you may purchase a ticket for the Oct. 7 show for $7 apiece. The remaining five shows for the series are: Nov. 4 “Lure of Alaska”; Dec. 2 ”The Heart of San Francisco”; Feb. 3 “Rediscovering Ancient America”; March 3 “Amazon” and April 7 “Bhutan, The Cloud Kingdom.”

The Fairfield Glade Lions Club are pleased to bring you the Travel & Adventure Series each year. The presenters are professional people who send their lives filming, editing and showing you places of interest. Maybe some of you have traveled to some of these places but it will bring back some fine memories. Others can enjoy sitting in a comfortable atmosphere and visit places they may never see in person. We hope you will long remember the parts of this world that should entertain your mind.
