The day's program was presented by member Bettye Lou Smith, a local travel agent and avid traveler. She began by describing the reasons for travel, ranging from business, family obligations and, of course, leisure or pleasure travel. Mrs. Smith offered a number of cost saving tips such as parking outside the airport and traveling by free shuttle to the terminal. The explosion of growth in cruise travel was also discussed from the first Carnival lines offering cruises from Florida in the 1970's to the millions of tourists taking cruises today from ports around the world. Next, Mrs. Smith described the original Wonders of the World selected 2137 years ago as well as the updated man-made version selected by a foundation in 2001 from responses received by travelers from around the world. The modern wonders are the Taj Mahah, Chicken Itza, the Colosseum, the Great Wall of China, Petra, Machu Picchu, and Christ the Redeemer.
At the conclusion of the program, the hostess invited members to the tea table which featured various travel decor items and trinkets. In keeping with the theme Mrs. Smith served a selection of delicacies from around the world including prosciutto panino, German dilled cucumbers, bacon and mushroom quiche, pan dulce, truffles, creme Anglaise aux fruit, Russian tea, and coffee.
