|Library To Host Program on India by Sue Rollinson|
Clifton Forge, VA (Oct. 3, 2018) - While many people have visited India, what is it like for an American to live in a â€śnon-touristâ€ť part of India?
The public is cordially invited to spend an evening with local resident Sue Rollinson who lived in India from 2013 to 2015. Her program, â€śEveryday Life in India,â€ť will be held in the Michael Armstrong Community Room of the Clifton Forge Public Library. It will begin at 6:00 p.m., on Tuesday, October 16.
When MeadWestvaco (now WestRock) acquired an Indian paper manufacturer, Ms. Rollinsonâ€™s husband, Lon, was asked to oversee the MWV operations in Vapi, an industrial town in the Indian state of Gujarat. The Rollinsons had the opportunity to visit many places in India for both business and pleasure.
An organic chemist by training, Sue has taught at Dabney S. Lancaster Community College (DSLCC), was the first director of the Jackson River Governorâ€™s School, and continues to be a co-director/instructor of the Field Ecology Summer Regional Governorâ€™s School at DSLCC.
Residents of Clifton Forge since 1980, the Rollinsons have three adult children who are graduates of Alleghany High School. Since retiring, the Rollinsons have been enjoying extensive travel, both in the United States and overseas.
Admission to â€śEveryday Life in Indiaâ€ť is free.
Light refreshments will be provided following Ms. Rollinsonâ€™s program.
The Clifton Forge Public Library is located at 535 Church Street.
