BEAUFORT - Friends of the Beaufort Library, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) and Santa Elena Foundation have banded together to bring an educational adventure to the Lowcountry - a trip to Spain.

Included in the trip will be sights in southern Spain -Madrid, Cordova, Seville, Granada, Valencia, and Barcelona - plus a cocktail party with Count Alvaro, a direct descendant of Pedro Menendez, the Spanish explorer who settled Santa Elena (present-day Parris Island) in 1566.

The trip will give travelers the opportunity to learn more about the community's Spanish roots as well as experience Spanish culture, history, food and people....
