DEWITT — Tom Gibbons of Clinton will share about his trips to the East Coast of the United States and Canada during his DeWitt Noon Lions Travelogue presentation Tuesday.

He traveled east by automobile in 2017 and by train and cruise ship in 2018 and saw wonderful sights from New York City to Quebec, Nova Scotia and several states and provinces in between, as well as Bermuda. Armchair travelers will visit deep caves, mountaintops, scenic rivers and lakes, the ocean, forests, sea life and waterfalls. They also will enjoy historical places in both old and new history, including the French and Indian War, 9/11, a famous flood, and a look at Alexander Graham Bell and what else he did.

Shows are at 3 and 7 p.m. at the Operahouse Theater in downtown DeWitt. The Noon Lions Club suggests a donation of $5 to support community projects.

Several local restaurants will have special items on their menus for travelogue patrons, and DeWitt businesses will be open for those who would like to make a day of it.

The next program in the series is April 30. Join Pam Bahr and Jim England of Maquoketa for Glaciers, Waterfalls and Geysers – Oh, My! — a tour of Iceland via the Ring Road.

Remaining travelogue destinations are North Korea, The Amazon River and Japan on May 7, 14 and 28.
