Second Wind news and upcoming programs for the week of Jan. 19-23


secondwindlogoWow we have had fantastic Second Wind programs and speakers so far in January and the month isn’t over!

Jim Coate’s  Travelogue to Alaska on January 9th at the Highland Public Library was absolutely amazing! Jim’s photos of Alaska were stunning and his stories about the trip were very entertaining. We were treated by Jim to photos and stories not only from his motorcycle ride from Arlington, Virginia to Alaska but also to Uruguay. If you missed this amazing travelogue you can see some of Jim’s photos and read the blog Jim kept during his travels by following this link  www.travelpod.com/members/jim.coates  Thank you Jim for sharing your travels with us!
