Accent on Travel owner Annette Nero Stellhorn said, “Travel is exciting, fun, and experiential. We want our guests to feel that when they come to our travel show. Jim Gray, a local event designer, will be bringing as much of the African Safari theme to the venue as possible without bringing in live animals. We invite the public to come out and learn about exciting travel opportunities that could be ahead of them and support either of these great organizations. And, for those who have already been to Africa, our theme this year, we invite them to pull out their own African garb and join us.”
