It is a lovely image of him Avril - that is the way to remember him.  It is a tribute to him and to you that you collected these wonderful memories of him for him. - Love & Hugs - Wendy

Bill was a fortunate man to have you as his life partner.  And you could not have had a better husband.  You both chose well.  

The photo is special.

Thank you all--your messages have been so uplifting and have really helped. Love, Avril

Thanks, Avril for your series of images preparing us for this time.  What a wonderful world it would be if each of us, at the end of our lives, could count on receiving the sort of love and care you gave Bill.

Sorry for your loss, the photo of Bill is beautiful.

Love the photo of Bill. I feel for you very much. Take care of yourself now. If when I get home there is anything you need even just to talk call me and I will call you right back so it is on my nickle.

Love Trudy

This group will infuse some new energy and direction into the Club. Feedback from club members indicates that people would like more interactive educational activities (workshops, classes, small field trips etc.) and maybe a schedule of educational opportunities ahead of time so that people can plan to attend.

The Victoria Camera Club has an external speaker every month and are willing to share their list of speakers so we can participate, at a cost of $5 a person. The club has funds to cover this at the moment. This would require using the  Zoom format (which has worked so well during this Pandemic).

Club meetings will resume in October, giving this new group time to work out their ideas for new directions.

Some people are cautious about in person meetings (because of health issues) and others are ready and able to jump back in. Maybe in person meetings and Zoom meetings can co-exist. Something to talk about.

Maureen has offered to look into a monthly newsletter with, possibly, more coverage than the website offers such as emails, using facebook etc.

Avril would like to see an improved use of the website: more posts, more comments, more helpful critiquing. We might need a refresher course to remind us how to give constructive feedback.

Doug has a show about Covid in September at the library -  in the Community Program Room. He will give a talk on September 7th at Noon. This will be previously unseen material, not the triptychs we have seen on the website.

Photosynthesis has a virtual show coming up, starting on August 31st. Some club members also belong to this photography group.

There is no theme yet for the photography challenge in October but when that is decided it will be communicated to everyone.
