    Magical Morocco: Tales of Travel and Transformation

    What happens when you seize the moment – and find that you can’t let go? Elaine’s story of personal reinvention and late-career tranformation begins with an innocent trip to Morocco to participate in a culinary tour. The cooking never happened, but instead, she found new life purpose when she and a partner started a travel business there.  Since 2013, she’s made 10 trips to Morocco, collecting never-forgettable experiences and insights into this exotic country along the way.  She’ll enchant you with her glorious photographs of Morocco while sharing stories about her adventures – and maybe a few tips about touring there as well.

    Presenter:  Elaine Dixson

    Haysboro Community Hall at 1204  89 Avenue S.W. (a few blocks west of Elbow Drive on 89th Avenue SW).

    Free for members, $5 charge at the door for non-members. Guests are welcome. No registration required.
