Canoe presentation set for miller program

FULTON, Ill. — The Volunteer Millers at de Immigrant windmill will host their October program “Rivers by Canoe” at 6 p.m. Monday, Oct. 29, at the Windmill Cultural Center, 111 10th Ave., in downtown Fulton, across from the Dutch windmill.

All miller programs in the 2012 series are designed to complement Fulton’s tourism theme:  “River Connections.”

Marion Johnson has been traveling by canoe most of her life. She and her husband enjoy this way of traveling because of its exercise potential. They also believe it is the best way to experience the power and beauty of a river.

Johnson will relate some of her travels on a variety of rivers, describe what is needed to paddle safely, and conclude with a slide show and demonstration.

Johnson has degrees from Tufts University and Virginia Tech University. She taught chemistry at Mount St. Clare College for more than 25 years.

Following her retirement, she became a volunteer at Bickelhaupt Arboretum and the Felix Adler Children’s Discovery Center.

She is a Master Gardener and is married with three children and 12 grandchildren.

All the programs sponsored by the Volunteer Millers are funded by a grant from the Fulton Association for Community Enrichment.

The events are free and open to the public.  The Windmill Cultural Center is handicap accessible.

Following the presentation, refreshments will be served.
