21 Winters in Israel

PRESENTED ON AUG 20, 2015
IN ST JOSEPH @ VOL 2

No matter what Mary Nigro was going through, the first question to her doctors was "Can I still go to Israel?" Her first trip was at age 56, but it changed her life. Mary shares a story of her 21 winters in Israel where she's learned that having passion and living the right way will get you far in life. 

"If you haven't ever tried to back a camel out of a bus, you've got some exciting things ahead!"

Mary is from Niles, MI and has been retired from Whirlpool Corp for 20 years.

Today’s Israel Array

BY JENNIFER NOBEL
@ VOL 22 ON JUN 02, 2017

You may consider Jennifer Nobel a starving artist, but since she likes to cook so much, she’s more like a yearning artist.  Her writing and photography work is not a secret mission, although it’s hidden in the pages of two inspirational compilations, travel features for AAA’s Home & Away, along with archived photography and profile stories for Etc. for Her a local magazine. As a wife and mother of three, she’s kept her family lively in having three foreign exchange students in the past ten years from China, France, and thankfully also from Japan.  Instead of traveling, they brought travel home. Her PechaKucha contribution is titled “Today’s Israel Array,” where array is defined as “an ordered arrangement, in particular.”
