Vicariously Attempting to Understand Modern China

Several Door County residents that have travelled to China recently will share their experiences in a presentation, “Attempting to Understand Modern China,” at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County (UUFDC), Ephraim on Thursday, February 18 at 7 pm.

A panel of members and friends of the fellowship, all of whom have traveled to China in the past five months, will present their observations and some analysis. Panel members include: Gloria Dougherty and Lynn Olson, who observed rural areas while attending the cooking program at the Linden Center in Yunnan Province; Roselyn Krapf, who spent three weeks with her son and family in Shanghai; Estella and Chuck Lauter, who toured six cities and the gorges of the Yangtze for four weeks; and Margot and Rik Warch, who visited Beijing, Xian, and Chengdu.

All have returned desiring to share their impressions with others, since many in the U.S. know very little about the degree of change taking place in China. Audience participation and questions are encouraged, and attendees will have the opportunity to travel vicariously through the vast nation with panel members.

The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42, Ephraim. The program is free and open to the public. For more information visit
