The spring 2015 meeting of the Arkansas Chapter of The Travelers’ Century Club was held on May 2. The lunch was at Samantha’s private meeting room. In the spirit of that day’s Kentucky Derby, mint juleps were the drink du jour. See more photos below.

Discussions included “miracles” in Ethiopia; life-changing experiences in Myramar; Bhutan; and sights that inspired us, from Iceland’s stark natural beauty to entire tours brought to tears by trips on Lake Powell to Bryce Canyon. Recent television special on Nova made many wish we had a Hubble’ss telescopic view of the Universe.

Save the date for PhotoExpo, when Denny Grandle will present: Aug. 7-8, 2015.
