The Shwedagon Pagoda is a gilded stupa located in Yangon, Myanmar. Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, will be the subject of the next Rotary Club of Lititz Travelogue, set for Saturday, at 2 and 7:30 p.m.

 

The next Rotary Club of Lititz Travel and Adventure Series will be held Saturday, Feb. 4, at the Warwick High School Performing Arts Center, 301 W. Orange St., Lititz. There will be two showings, at 2 and 7:30 p.m., with musical entertainment 30 minutes prior to each show. The show is entitled “Burma, Reflections on a Hidden Land.”

The land once known as Burma (now called Myanmar) is hidden behind a gold and silk curtain. Patricia Keith and Sean Cassidy explore Myanmar, seeking to find out what lies behind the façade commonly presented to visiting tourists. Burma is an amazingly beautiful land, rich in history and culture. Despite incredible hardships, the Burmese people are among the friendliest on Earth and welcome visitors with smiles and a surprising openness. Investigate Bagan, a set of ruins that rivals Angkor Wat or Machu Piccu, yet is almost unknown to most people. Or watch the gossamer strands be woven into gorgeous clothing. And finally, meet the people of Burma.

Sean Cassidy spent eight years abroad visiting much of Europe before he was 16. Today, Cassidy teaches video production at Lewis & Clark College and continues to travel around the world, always taking a camera with him along with enthusiasm for people and places. Patricia is a college English professor and instructor of video production. She has produced a historical documentary titled “Journey to Eureka,” which has been shown on Idaho Public Television and numerous screenings in the Northwest.

General admission tickets are sold at the door. The cost is $7 for adults and $3 for students. Season tickets, which can be used at any show, cost $35 for adults and $12 for students. Season tickets can be purchased from any Rotary Club of Lititz member, or from the Lititz Public Library.

Net funds from travelogue are given to more than 30 non-profit service groups each year, as well as providing college loans and scholarships to many local students.
