Mary Lesesne, Meredith McCleary, Sandra Hunter, Socorro Ramirez and Carolyn Harris.

Addie Owens, president of the Northwest Federated Woman’s Club invited Meredith McCleary, Travel Consultant, to do a special presentation on Africa for the Adult Daycare attendees in celebration of Black History Month. The staff and attendees celebrated with a virtual trip to Africa with McCleary. She was accompanied by frequent travel companions Carolyn Harris and Mary Lesesne. Together, they displayed and described collections of fabrics and artifacts accumulated on many previous trips.

Clad in authentic African garments, they provided a mini fashion parade augmented with explanation of the fabric, design and country of origin. Their shared highlights of travel experiences throughout the continent prompted one of the Center participants to recall childhood memories of vicarious travel through her father’s  Cruise ship employment.

An attentive audience engaged in examination of items on display and animated questions about possibilities for a real trip.

A most enjoyable experience was shared by all. Expressed interested in a future presentation is gladly being considered.
