Travel programs are always popular at Lapham Center. On Wednesday, September 24 at 1:30 p.m. New Canaan resident Tom Cross
will recount his adventures trekking the Himalayas. In March 2012 Tom joined a group of seventeen hikers who were about to take the trip of a lifetime. Their expedition took them through some of the most stunning mountain scenery on earth as they walked on "the rooftop of the world." He will share his photos and tell stories about their adventures from Kathmandu to Kala Patthar (18,514 feet).
There is no fee but registration is requested for this and all other programs at 203-594-3620.
