Josh Davis - On Friday, June 17th, more than 110 people were given a taste of the world during Gordon Peterson and Cathy Scrimshaw's photo presentation in the Town Hall Gym, titled Other Special Places. The Beaver Mines couple shared tales of their globe trotting exploits, including both poles, Madagascar, Easter Island, Namibia, Mongolia, South America, southeast Asia, and the remotest gift shop in the world. Proceeds from the event were slated for the Boun Lod Fund.
The slide-show presentation included details about what made each exotic location, from any historic monuments, to natural phenomena, to local flora and fauna, to anthropological significance. They also shared personal stories about what made the places special to them.
