Travel the Globe without leaving Pinedale
by Sublette County Library
February 18, 2010
The Sublette County Library invites you to come along on a free trip to the Easter Islands Tuesday, February 23 in the Community Room at 7 pm. Well-loved Pinedale science teacher, Elaine Crumpley, will share stories and photos from her trip to this Polynesian island as the final of their three part series, Arm Chair Traveler. Attendees are asked to use the Charles Street entrance.
If you love a great mystery; are fascinated with intriguing archaeology; crave adventure and knowing that the nearest land from you is 2,500 miles away excites you, Easter Islands might just be the "destination" spot for you.
Crumpley made strong friendships on two prior visits to Rapa Nui and was asked to come back and teach science to their children. The children had not had any previous opportunity to learn science in a lab-based experience. Her recent retirement allowed her to turn this idea into a reality.
"No matter that they live on the most remote island on earth, no matter that they have little to no school supplies, and cope with very limited natural resources such as fresh water, food and land", said Crumpley. "They all love to learn new things, are thrilled to hear outside news, and are curious about everything. They are smart, funny, happy, and care deeply for each other and are proud of their culture, heritage and home".
Please join us for enjoyable evening of international entertainment. Light refreshments will be served at this free event.
