Trekking with the Snow Leopard
May 14 at 7 p.m.
Event is free and open to the public.
Steve Caskey will share an evening of images and stories from his three-week journey through the Dolpo region of Nepal. His trek took him close to the Tibetan border, across the Himalayan crest to the Tibetan plateau. The trek involved the physical and mental challenges associated with hiking across nine passes over 15,000 feet elevation and two over 18,000 feet. In addition to the breathtaking scenery, Steve will share his insights into the Tibetan culture through the people he encountered. Caskeyâ€™s talk, â€œTrekking with the Snow Leopardâ€, speaks of his initial interest in this journey which was sparked by reading The Snow Leopard by Peter Matthiessen. The book describes an unforgettable spiritual journey through the Himalayas. Now 21 years after reading the book, Caskey shares his own journey. Donations will be accepted for the CCEast Scholarship Awards and Fire Mountain Arts Council.

Filmed in our community of Morton! Brooks Caldwell, (Cary Elwes) an erudite and handsome lawyer, seems to have it all: wealth, social status and a red hot career. His success is, in reality, a product of his marriage to his beautiful, socialite wife, Amanda, (Terri Polo) a wealthy timber heiress. Unlike most, who would remain content to enjoy a life of luxury and privilege, Brooks continues to risk everything by having extramarital affairs. Brooks’ philandering, in addition to humiliating Amanda, has driven her to the point of a mental breakdown. Having been pushed over the edge, Amanda orchestrates a just and elaborate plan to bring her husband down. When Brooks leaves for a weekend romp with his latest squeeze, (Agnes Bruckner) his life quickly descends into a bizarre, nightmarish, downward spiral. View movie trailer.

Adapted from Janet Oakleyâ€™s award-winning novel, this script takes us into the lives in the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC).
