Canals, Spain -- Presentation of the book Memorias de Escora (1959-2009)
On April 8, in the Exposition Hall in Canals (Valencia), the presentation of the book Memorias de Escora (1959-2009) by Rafael López took place. The author was one of the first members of this youth club for extracurricular and free-time educational activities. At the end photographs of activities held there were shown.
The four hundred page book is a collection of commemorative events organized on the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the beginning of this youth club in Canals, which was started at the urging of St. Josemaría.
To commemorate the Golden Anniversary other initiatives were also organized. For example, the Peña Himalaya de Escora (Escora’s mountain climbing club) put on an exposition of photographs of excursions during this half century and placed a statue of our Lady of Sorrows, blessed by the village pastor, on the highest peak of Canals, the Atalaya. Many people from the nearby area have already made pilgrimages there.
