Skybok Films in Atlanta
Skybok produced a video showcase of the International Rotary Convention held in Atlanta, Georgia. We’ll soon be writing about our trip to the last one in Hamburg, Germany (2019).
As far as Atlanta goes, I absolutely loved the city! Especially the Margaret Mitchell House – Margaret Mitchell was the author of “Gone With The Wind”!
