We are excited to have Jerry Davis sharing his “Adventures and Misadventures Around the World’ on Thursday, March 26, 2020, 6:00 p.m., sponsored by Claiborne Parish Library. If you are looking for a dull travel-log recitation to attend, then this program is NOT for you!
When I asked Mr. Davis to speak he said, “Do you know what old men do? They tell stories, that’s what we do.” And Jerry Davis has great stories to share about his work career supervising pipeline construction for most of the major oil companies. His work took him from Indonesia to the jungles of the Amazon and the peaks of the Andes, he had encounters with revolutionaries, kidnappers, indigenous tribes, near airplane disasters; he lived in primitive conditions and as well as five-star hotels.
Jerry was married to the late Betty Davis, who many remember as a school teacher here in Claiborne Parish. Upon her retirement Betty joined Jerry in many of his adventures throughout the world.
Mr. Davis is another good example of someone who lives quietly among us that have had very interesting adventures during their work careers. To hear these stories and memories in the voices of those who lived these interesting lives is a real treat and oral histories are important to preserve.
Claiborne Parish Library is proud to sponsor this program. Mark your calendar for Thursday, March 26, 2020, 6:00 p.m. and join us for My Adventures and Misadventures Around the World with Haynesville resident, Jerry Davis. This program is free and open to the public. For more
