Travel Talks

Travel Talks is an alliance of Riderwood residents who have traveled extensively and taken photographs. They always look forward to sharing their experiences with the audience, and are available for comments or questions from the audience during and/or after the presentation.  Additional resident presenters are welcome.

All Travel Talks will be held in the MST Chesapeake Room at 7:30PM the first Wednesday of the month, September through May.  For more information or to get onto our mailing list for notifications of upcoming presentations, contact Don Messersmith at
