‘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.

For more information call Shirley Kristensen at 250-672-9501.
