Mark April 25 on your calendar. That is the date of the next Cultural Campus Progressive Dinner in Venice. Fast becoming one of the most popular events in Venice, the event begins with wine and hors d’oeuvres at the Triangle Inn, home of the city archives and museum. After a bit of mixing and mingling, the crowd moves on to the library for salad before heading to the community center for the main event. Dessert is served with entertainment at Venice Art Center. In addition to the good food and entertainment, guests can see firsthand, some of the key cultural places in Venice. Tickets are $40 each. Call the art center at 941-485-7136 to pay by credit card.
Currently on view at the Triangle Inn is “Digging Up Discoveries.” Featuring more than 350 Southwest Florida fossils discovered by members of the Manasota Fossil Club and the Southwest Florida Fossil Club. While there never were dinosaurs in Florida, there were plenty of other intriguing and often large creatures prowling above today’s Florida. At least four times, the prowling was underwater because the whole state has been submerged at least four times between ice ages, fossil club members say. If we are indeed in a period of global warming, the fifth time may be on its way. Learn more at the Triangle Inn, 351 S. Nassau St., Venice. It is open Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and on the first and third Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
