Founders Hall Seminar Series, sponsored by Union Savings Bank, is open to the public. This week on Friday, Sept. 20, at 1 p.m., please join Founders Hall member, Kriszta Venczel, for her seminar about Vietnam. During the seminar, she will share her experiences, in pictures and words, of her travels in Vietnam. She will detail the country’s rich history, friendly people, beautiful scenery, and good food. Kriszta visited out-of-the-way places to meet and interact with local people. During her travels, she also tried her hand at their handicrafts, and listened to countless stories which she will discuss.
