Allen County Area Retired School Personnel met May 2 at Dudleys Done Right BBQ in Iola. There were 31 members in attendance with four guests, Janie Works, Pam Powers, Dianna Cuppy and Jane Martin, the District Representative.
Don Walburn introduced Works who provided the program on Brazil and the Amazon River. She traveled to Rio De Janeiro in 2015 for a three-week trip on a ship up the river.
The city, which was getting prepared for the Summer Olympics, was very colorful, she said. They toured the Museum of Tomorrow, saw colorful murals on buildings, and visited the Cathedral, which was built so it didnt need air conditioning.
