‘Male lion at dusk’

On Friday, Jan. 28, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., at the North Thompson Volunteer Centre in the Ridge, you can travel to Africa for free.

An Illustrated Travelogue on the Kalahari Desert and Namibia will be presented by retired botanist/photographer Dave Williams on his trip in 2007 with 11 other photographer – artists to the Kalahari Desert and the dunes of southern Namibia.

There will be something for everyone – history, geography, plants, animals and people. As an added bonus you will make a quick stop over in London and visit Kew Gardens; and if time permits you may even get to visit Cape Town on our way home.

The slide show is co-sponsored by the North Thompson Fish and Game Club, and the North Thompson Garden Club. Admission is free but a donation for the Barriere Food Bank would be gladly appreciated.

Williams says he is looking forward to sharing his passion for life and photography with area residents.
