WALKING THE CAMINO

Presented by Barb McAllister and Will Whitesmith
Island Center Hall Sunday January 25 3:00p Free

Join Will Whitesmith and Barb McAllister as they share their experience with walking both the French and Spanish Camino. They will share the challenges they faced, the insights/lessons they learned, the history and culture of the Camino and the people they met. Their enthusiasm for this amazing journey is infectious. If you have wondered what it would be like to be a pilgrim with a pack, or whether you could do this adventure, please come. They will show you that it is entirely possible to prepare in such a way that you can actually do it. For more information about their Camino journey go to Will's blog at www.myheartsmith.com.
