Discovery Night is Back!
Starting again in September our Discovery Night series will be presenting interesting and entertaining speakers. Presentations take place in the Ballantrae Community Centre, 5592 Aurora Rd., on the 3rd Thursday of each month, starting at 7 p.m. A $5 fee covers the presentation, coffee, juice and cookies. A very inexpensive cost for an interesting evening!
Join us for this series of speakers on worldwide journeys, fascinating nature stories, adventure treks and other stories on a wide variety of subjects. It is also an opportunity to get together with your ORTA friends to catch up on what is happening in our organization. Come along and bring a friend to enjoy these pleasant evenings.
Bob and Dianne Charlton have often done presentations of some of their very interesting trips around the world. This presentation covers a personally planned, self-driven tour of many of the byways and historic sights in both Southern and Northern Ireland.
