CC@H Guest Speakers Series: Hiking El Camino with Kathleen McGuinness

Enjoy a guided photo journey of the most famous walking route in the world-the Camino de Santiago, known in English as the Way of St. James. It has become one of the world's most popular walking holidays and spiritual journeys. For more than 1,000 years, pilgrims and adventures have made their way across Europe to visit the shrine of St. James the Great, now the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela in northwestern Spain. Declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, the cathedral is the epitome of Romanesque architecture in Spain and the reputed burial place of the apostle Saint James the Great.
Our engaging and entertaining speaker, Kathleen McGuinness, is a Commissioner on the Council on Aging for Montgomery County. Her 500-mile foot journey was written up in The Washington Post. She is a 3rd generation Washingtonian who, while recuperating from a fall and four fractured vertebrae, decided to set a goal of walking the Camino. One year later, she started that trek. Enjoy Kathleen's stunning photographs! Find out about her adventures and how she regained her footing in life upon her return. This event will take place at the Chevy Chase Village Hall, 5906 Connecticut Ave. Parking is available on neighboring streets. The event is free, but please register in advance.
Thursday, April 11, 2024, 1:00 PM until 2:30 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada) (UTC-05:00)
