On Saturday, October 14, the Silver City Shroud of Turin Society will once again host the Shroud of Turin Presentation at the Grant County Veterans Memorial Business and Conference Center. This will be the last time that we will have this fascinating exhibit and lecture. We will have both Barrie Schwortz, official documenting photograper from the 1978 STURP (Shroud of Turin Research Project), and Peter Schumacher, VP-8 production engineer and owner of the international Shroud Museum in Alamogordo, NM.

The exhibit features Mr. Schwortz's 14-ft. life-size photograph of the Shroud of Turin, plus several 3-D pictures, which are the work of Dr. Petrus Soons. The exhibit will be free and open to the public all day at the Conference Center.

At 6 pm in the evening, Mr. Schwortz will give a lecture entitled "New Mexcio and the Scientific Examination of the Shroud of Turin," with a question and answer session following the lecture.
