NOVEMBER TRAVELOGUE! Join Salida Recreation at the Salida Steamplant, Wed., Nov. 9 from 7-8:30pm, doors open at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $5/person and a cash bar is available with beer, wine and soft drinks. The Salida Recreation Travelogue series is a great way to see others' recreation related vacations and adventures without ever having to leave Salida. It is also a great way for those that do the traveling to share their experiences with their community. Travelogues are also a great way to get travel tips and ideas for YOUR next recreation vacation. TheNovember Travelogue features the Salida Circus and their visit to Amman, Jordan. Five members of Salida Circus spent 9 days in September sharing social circus programs throughout Amman, Jordan. They were invited by the family of former Prime Minister, Abdul Kareem Kabariti. The Salida Circus troupe experienced the customs, culture and kindness of this unique Middle Eastern country while joining in circus fun and proving, once again, that wherever you go in the world…kids are kids are kids!
