The 2010-2011 Travel and Adventure Film Series will continue with “Texas ñ Byways and Highways” at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, March 16, in the North Iowa Community Auditorium. NIACC and the Mason City Noon Kiwanis are proud to sponsor the Travel and Adventure Series. There will be a 15-minute intermission at which time door prizes will be given away.
When standing in El Paso, you are closer to Los Angeles, California than to Texarcana, located on the other side of Texas. Brownsville is only 475 miles from Mexico City but almost 800 miles from Amarillo. Texas covers a broad expanse of southwest terrain with an equally broad expanse of sights. As you travel the Texas byways and highways, you can view everything from natural wonders to technological icons.
Texas offers a state filled with contrasts. Wonders of nature include the Palo Duro Canyon, second largest canyon in the United States, and Braken Cave near San Antonio, where 20 million bats emerge every night. Visits through Texas provide a view of everything from cattle, peanuts and cotton to NASA, metroplexes, and the technological Silicone Valley surrounding Austin, the state capitol.
Join us as Dale Johnson narrates a journey through a state where football is the Sate religion, oil is the lymph gland, and everything rests on a foundation of cotton and peanuts, with cattle as the foundation.
Admission to “Texas ñ Byways and Highways” is $5 for adults and $3 for students, at the door. Tickets can be purchased at NIACC or from any Mason City Noon Kiwanis member. A portion of the proceeds go toward area youth programs. For additional information, call NIACC Continuing Education at 641-422-4358. |
