African Safari Travelogue
The Volunteer Miller program for the month of May brings a unique travelogue to the Windmill Cultural Center at 100 10th Avenue Fulton, IL on Sunday May 19 at 2:00pm. Traci (Vanderploeg) Kraemer is a native of Fulton, IL. She and her husband, Ross, have been to 26 countries in the past 12 years, including three countries in Africa in the past 18 months. Travel photography is her favorite hobby.
Initially, her goal was to get amazing photos of the animals, but she soon saw the bigger picture encompassing the daily life of the local people (malaria, unclean water, etc). Meeting these incredibly warm, loving, Zambians who were truly happy (yet had nothing more than their huts and family) was a real eye-opening experience.
Traci finds in photography a way to travel with a purpose. Seeing that people all over the world are more similar to us than we imagine; she hopes her photography will bring insights of her travels home and bridge the divide between “us and them”.
This program is hosted by millers of "de Immigrant", Fulton's authentic Dutch windmill; assisted financially with a grant from the D.S. Flikkema Foundation. The event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served after the program. The facility is accessible to persons with disabilities. Join us for this amazing adventure into another culture.
