Mykonos Greece

A travelogue featuring Mykonos and other Greek islands will be Tuesday at the Dewitt Operahouse Theater. 

“Walk in the Footsteps of the Apostle Paul” is the title of the Tuesday, April 16, travelogue to be presented at the DeWitt Operahouse Theater and sponsored by the DeWitt Noon Lions Club.

Bonnie Lorenzen of Bettendorf will be the presenter of identical afternoon and evening programs that will include photographs of a cruise of the Greek Islands — including Mykonos, Patmos and Santorini — and scenes of the ruins of Ephesus, a city in Turkey that dates to biblical times.

Showtimes are 3 and 7 p.m.

As a courtesy to travelogue patrons, the Central Community Historical Museum in downtown DeWitt, located a half-block south of the theater, is open from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. on travelogue days.

Travelogue admission is a suggested $4 donation, with proceeds going to support the community projects of the DeWitt Noon Lions Club.

As a project of the Clinton County 4-H Youth Council, a dinner with sloppy joe sandwiches on the menu will be available from 4 to 7 p.m. at the DeWitt Community Center, with the early hours set to accommodate travelogue patrons. The cost is $5 per meal, with an extra sandwich available for $2. Tickets are available at the door.

Other upcoming travelogues in the series are:

  • April 30: “From Budapest to Prague” by Marcie Siegel of Walcott,  will include photographs of a cruise on the Danube River and  places that figured into the history of World War II.
  • May 7: “Turkey, Then and Now” by Richard Cole of Eldridge, whose pictures will feature the city of Istanbul, the world’s only city that straddles two continents — Europe and Asia. (This is the travelogue that was rescheduled from Feb. 26 because of bad weather.)
  • May 14: “African Safari” by Richard and Mary Ann Azinger of DeWitt.
