Send SSI Folks and Visitors a Seasonal Greeting.... and have a Seasons Greeting party...

Hi all - We have wonderful opportunity to send SSI folk and visitors a Photographic Seasonal Greeting from the SSI Photography Club... 

I would like to collect an array of framed photographs... any size, any content, any frame (the more decorative the better) that you like...  Please let me know if you are interested and would like to participate ( mcbenmore@saltspringcom )  --- so that I will have some idea of the # of images we are working with and whether or not I will have to puff it up with my own or rustled images...  I really would like contributions from as many of you as possible so that it is really a Club Greeting...  I'm sure Jen won't mind getting a few more hanging thingies.... 

The show will be hung at Fernwood Cafe Dec 12 and hang over the holidays until 5 pm Jan 16... The last two weeks of the show the cafe will be closed (Jen and Dave take their well earned holiday then...) so, you can peek at it through the window and we will get them when they return... 

We want Bold, Bright, Festive, Quiet, Contemplative..  or anything else that sends Your Greetings to all...  generally capturing the feeling of the season, any faith, any culture... the more and the more inclusive the better... It is a season of peace and harmony, caring and softness... and it is Festive...  

Write your greeting to all on an old beloved greeting card... it will send more calm out into the world.... Wow this is getting scarily SSI'ish... sorry sometimes it just takes over...  Just do it SSIy, okay --- any darn way You want to send good vibes to all... 

Join the fun... I will act as the collection point and would like all framed work at my house by the latest noon Saturday  Dec. 12... If someone would like to help me handle and hang them that would be wonderful...  

Then let's get together to toast each other with seasonal beverage at Fernwood....  Sunday Dec.13....   3pm... Fernwood Cafe... 

Hope you will join in this show... it will be interesting to see what comes up... 

Thanks... Cheers... MCB

Hi Marg, I have one to put up. Thanks for organizing this.

August minutes

Pierre introduced the new team who will help shape the Club in the future.

Simon Henson

Larry Citra

Maggie Vancik

Roger Brooks

Maureen Milburn

Ellen Vesterdal

Justene Tedder

Plus returning executive members:

Pat Page

Kahsia Hartwell

Wendy Rosier

Anna McColm

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.
