Adult Contemporary Book Discussion September 19

The Leisure Seeker by Michael Zadoorian is about a road trip. An elderly married couple from the Detroit area decide to take their RV on a nostalgic ride along Route 66 to Disneyland for one last vacation to remember and relive the past. It's not so much about the destination, as it is getting there. So take a journey with us and be a tourist on Monday, September 19 at 7:00 p.m. in the Purple Room.

Rescue Dogs in Japan

American and British search-and-rescue canine teams have been busy in the quake and tsunami devastated areas in Japan looking for survivors. These teams also helped find the missing in Haiti after that earthquake struck near its capitol in 2010. Rescue dogs are specifically trained to find the scent of people who are still alive and trapped in rubble after a disaster. To learn more, check out Scent of the Missing.
