Final Travelogue Film Features Mesoamerica

On April 17, the Kiwanis & Rotary Clubs of Northern Door host their sixth and final travel adventure film of the season, Worlds of the Maya, with an exploration to Belize and Guatemala. It was here the ancient Mayan civilization once occupied the eastern third of Mesoamerica.

Similar to the Greeks, the Mayan were religiously and artistically a nation, but politically, the civilization functioned as many as 20 sovereign states in Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula. Excelling in mathematics, astrology, massive building techniques and agriculture, the Mayan contributed a wealth of scientific and artistic accomplishments that continue to amaze modern scientists.

Presenting the show live will be award-winning lecturer and travel film producer Sandy Mortimer. Mortimer’s long career has ranged from politics to film and television production, journalism and news reporting. The Worlds of the Maya holds many surprises as it introduces us to the groups of Maya existing both yesteryear and today.

Showtime is 7:30 pm at the First Baptist Church of Sister Bay. Tickets may be purchased at the door. Admission price is $7; children under 18 are admitted free. Refreshments will be available during intermission. For more information, call Gary at 920.854.4825 or Larry at 920.839.9419.
