Travelogue Series’ Final Voyage

On April 20 the Kiwanis Club wraps up their Travelogue film season with a finale voyage to Rio de Janeiro aboard the famed Cunard ocean liner, the Queen Mary 2.

In 1934, The Cunard Line launched the Queen Mary – the largest ship of its time, setting a new standard for ocean liners of the era. In 2004, the fourth Queen to sail under the Cunard flag was launched, The Queen Mary 2. At the time of her launch, the Queen Mary 2 became the longest, tallest, widest, biggest ocean liner of the world. And to commemorate the launch, Cunard sent the Queen Mary 2 on a voyage to Rio de Janeiro for the largest party on earth, Carnival.

The film traces the ship’s duplicate voyage of the legendary trip of the S.S. Normandie in 1938. The historic journey remains one of the most remembered voyages of the 20th century.

Doug Jones will present the film. During his career, Jones has produced 18 feature-length travel films since 1968 and has appeared on many auditorium lecture series in the United States and Canada, including the National Geographic Society series at Constitution Hall in Washington, D.C.

The show starts at 7:30 pm at the First Baptist Church of Sister Bay. Admission price is $7 and children under 18 are admitted free. Tickets may be purchased at the door and refreshments will be available during intermission.
