Description: 

We hope you can plan to join us in October 2015 as Vermont PBS hosts a once-in-a-lifetime excursion to southern Italy and Sicily… with a food-focused travel companion sure to make the experience even more memorable.

We’ll take in the sights and sounds of Sicily, Pompeii, Alberobello, the Amalfi Coast and so much more. And with Executive Chef Shawn Calley in attendance, we’ll also savor the flavors of this exquisite region – with an expert hand to guide us. Two-time Top Chef Award winner and executive chef at The Essex Resort & Spa, Calley’s passion is locally sourced, European-inspired food… a most fitting background to help inform our travels.

A benefit for Vermont PBS, this intimate group excursion is limited to just 24 people, which will allow you the time and the latitude to steep yourself in the culture, history and extraordinary beauty of southern Italy… and to take advantage of culinary delights at every turn! The 12-day excursion, being organized by Collette Travel, departs Oct. 8, 2015, with reservation deadline coming in April. It promises to be a visual and sensory experience you’ll long remember.

Plan to join us Tuesday, Jan. 27 at 3:30 pm, for an informational meeting – and get your questions answered. Meeting will be held at The Essex Resort & Spa in Essex, Vt. To reserve a space at the informational meeting, or for more information, please contact George Hauenstein at Vermont PBS:  802-654-3669 ghauenstein@vermontpbs.org.

Description: 

Screening & discussion of American Experience 1964.  It was the year of the Beatles and the Civil Rights Act; of the Gulf of Tonkin and Barry Goldwater’s presidential campaign; the year that cities across the country erupted in violence and Americans tried to make sense of the Kennedy assassination. Based on The Last Innocent Year: America in 1964 by award-winning journalist Jon Margolis, this film follows some of the most prominent figures of the time — Lyndon B. Johnson, Martin Luther King, Jr., Barry Goldwater, Betty Friedan — and brings out from the shadows the actions of ordinary Americans whose frustrations, ambitions and anxieties began to turn the country onto a new and different course.
